There may seem to be little relation between their rough-and-ready collections of raw texts and the well-selected, carefully-processed, encoded and annotated corpora prepared by linguists. My argument, however, is that the process of compiling such collections is educational, even where the product is not fully satisfactory.

The correct translation is not in the digital cameras corpora. The translation of ‘focus’ can, however, be found: mise au point. Using a search engine on the Web for mise au point leads to the complete translation: Natalie Kübler 41 ‘focus brackets’: repères de mise au point and not parenthèses … The number of Web pages that are found containing a specific term is a criterion that helps validate a term.
