This paper presents a new parallel resource – text corpora – for Kazakh language with on-line access. We describe 3 different approaches to collecting parallel text and how much data we managed to collect using them, parallel Kazakh-English text corpora collected from various sources and aligned on sentence level, and web accessible corpus management system that was set up using open source tools – corpus manager Mantee and web GUI KonText. As a result of our work we present working web-accessible corpus management system to work with collected corpora.
