Tuebingen System of Text Processing tools
TUSTEP is a professional toolbox for scholarly processing textual data (including those in non-latin scripts) with a strong focus on humanities applications. It contains modules for all stages of scholarly text data processing, starting from data capture and including information retrieval, text collation, text analysis, sorting and ordering, rule-based text manipulation, and output in electronic or conventional form (including typesetting in professional quality).
Designed in cooperation with many humanities projects at the Computing Center of the University of Tübingen and first implemented in the seventies, TUSTEP is constantly being improved and upgraded (from 2003 with financial support from academic partner institutions) in order to facilitate solutions for new problems and to take advantage of new hardware and operating systems. As from June 2011, TUSTEP is open source software under the revised BSD license.
From 1993, the International TUSTEP User Group (ITUG) serves as a forum for TUSTEP users for information exchange and education.
