Description We present a web service for quickly producing corpora for specialist areas, in any of a range of languages, from the web. The underlying BootCaT tools have already been extensively used: here, we present a version which is easy for non-technical people to use as all they need do is fill in a web form. The corpus, once produced, can be either downloaded or loaded into the Sketch Engine, a corpus query tool, for further exploration. Reference corpora are used to identify the key terms in the specialist domain. The service is freely available to all on a trial basis.
