English: The development of digital resources is an expensive and time-consuming endeavor; especially in the case of less-resourced languages. In this paper; we describe a freely  available; open-source system; called TurboAnnotate; for  bootstrapping linguistic data for machine-learning purposes,  or for manually creating gold standards or other annotated  lists. A detailed description of the design and functionalities  of the tool is given, focusing on how the requirements of end-users are being addressed through it. It is indicated that  TurboAnnotate does not only promise to help increase the  accuracy of human annotators, but also to save enormously on  human effort in terms of time.
