License Conditions for Movies, Pictures, and Annotations on this Site

The DGS (German Sign Language) Corpus has been produced for two reasons, as a language resource for research, and as a contribution to cultural heritage of the sign language community.

Parts of this corpus are made available on this site for linguistic research. You may download and use the material for this sole purpose.

We ask you to cite corresponding DGS-Korpus publications if you publish your research based on this material.

For any kind of research, other applications, or the need of higher-resolution videos or birds-eye camera views, please contact us under info (at)

We would be grateful if you also use this address to report any errors you find in the annotation data. If your research creates additional annotation, we would appreciate if you share that annotation with us. Thank you!
