We describe the semi-automatic adapta- tion of a TimeML annotated corpus from English to Portuguese, a language for which TimeML annotated data was not available yet. In order to validate this adaptation, we use the obtained data to replicate some results in the literature that used the original English data. The fact that comparable results are obtained indi- cates that our approach can be used suc- cessfully to rapidly create semantically an- notated resources for new languages.
