Organising documents in one project in different folders

Dear all,

we are performing a multilingual annotation of a rather large set of documents. These documents are in 5 different languages but all get the same annotations.

We have created a WebAnno project and we would like to arrange the different documents into different directories (e.g. one for each language) inside WebAnno. Is it possible?

We are trying to avoid creating a project for each language.

Thanks for your attention,

There is no concept of folders in WebAnno at this point. The way to manage contexts is using projects.

You might care to have a look at INCEpTION [1]. It is compatible with WebAnno annotation projects but is faster, offers a better UI and more features than WebAnno does.
