In France, several national programs have platforms for the storage and access of linguistic resources: the CRDO, now known as COCOON and SLDR; Equipex Ortolang (which is relies on the expertise of the Centre de Ressources Numeriques CNRTL and SLDR) and TGE-Adonis.

The provide corpus builders with an environment that permits archiving and distribution of their work (respecting the extent of desired sharing). They offer all users with data visualization, searches of the entire database as well as downloading of data (with a license to do so).
