The DGT-Acquis is a family of several multingual parallel corpora extracted from the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) in Formex 4 (XML) format, consisting of documents from the middle of 2004 to the end of 2011 in up to 23 languages. The DGT-Acquis was first released in December 2012 and it follows the release of the JRC-Acquis sentence-aligned parallel corpus in 2006.

DGT-Acquis exists in several formats and it has been aligned at several levels, allowing a wider range of uses.
