Language Profiling / Author Identification
Both language profiling and author identification are legally recognized practices used for over 30 years.
Expert forensic linguists conduct the computer-supported practices. Therefore the results are very objective and usable in court.
We can support you with these methods in Germany.
They are skilled at categorizing authors by certain language characteristics or even identifying them and make use of the fact that language characteristics can tell a lot about the author of an anonymously written document.
Language profiling can provide hints to the author‘s native tongue, age, gender, occupation or level of education. In case of a specific suspicion, the author can be identified using other written documents for comparison. These documents have to be authored by the suspect and should belong to a similar text type as the anonymous document.
