The need for syntactically annotated data for use in natural language processing has increased dramatically in recent years. This is true especially for parallel treebanks, of which very few exist. The ones that exist are mainly hand-crafted and too small for reliable use in data-oriented applications. In this paper we introduce an open-source system for fast and robust automatic generation of parallel treebanks. We expect the opening of the presented platform to the scientific community to help boost research in the field of data-oriented machine translation and lead to advancements in other fields where parallel treebanks can be employed.
