#### About

11
We compile a multilingual parallel corpus from different versions of Wittgenstein's *Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus*, including the original in German and translations into English, Spanish, French, and Russian. Using this corpus we compute a similarity measure between propositions and render a visual network of relations for different languages. The lengths of the edges are determined by the similarity between two propositions and the colors correspond to each major propositional group from 1 to 7.
