Parallel corpora are currently a popular and vibrantly developing category of linguistic resources, used both in literature and translation studies, as well as in the field of NLP. For Ukrainian, though, there are still not enough significant parallel corpora compiled within a single roof project and made available to the research community. In this paper we present a newly developed resource, the German-Ukrainian Parallel Corpus — ParaRook||DE-UK, searchable online. We describe various issues related to its compilation, text selection, and annotation. The paper also features several examples of how the corpus can be used in linguistic research and translation studies. Using the experience of the German-Ukrainian parallel corpus, parallel corpora for other languages with Ukrainian can be developed.
