The Languages in Contrast project has initiated a collaboration with the Text Laboratory, University of Oslo, where Lars Nygaard, in particular, will contribute with programming and corpus development.

In addition mention must be made of all co-workers on the ENPC (before the OMC was launched), the English-Swedish Parallel Corpus (ESPC), and The Finnish-English Contrastive Corpus Studies (FECCS) Project.

At the moment there is no one working full-time developing and administering the OMC; questions or comments regarding the corpus can be directed to Professor Signe Oksefjell Ebeling.
