Abstract (EN)A critical edition takes into account all the different known versions ofthe same text in order to show the differences related to any two distinct versions.The construction of a critical edition is a long and, sometimes, tedious work. In orderto make it easier, softwares helping the philologist are nowadays available for theEuropean languages. Because of its complex graphical characteristics, which involvecomputationally expensive solutions to problems occurring in text comparisons,such softwares do not yet exist for Sanskrit language.This paper describes the Sanskrit characteristics that make text comparisonsdifferent, presents computationally feasible solutions for the elaboration of the computerassisted critical edition of Sanskrit texts, and provides, as a byproduct, adistance between two versions of the edited text.
