We show how several components of the JET natural language analysis tool, originally developed at New York University for the analysis of English text, were adapted to German. These components, such as the part of speech tagger and the noun chunker, are explained in terms that should be understandable to a layman. On the other hand, issues that arise specifically with regards to the German language are outlined in a way that could be of interest to people more experienced in natural language processing.
