This paper presents an ongoing CLARIN project that implements a library and web application for data management in language documentation and language typology. The project uses annotation graphs as pivot format, as described by ISO 24612 "Language resource management - Linguistic annotation framework (LAF)". The standard contains an XML representation of annotation graphs. We will show hwo we map common file formats onto annotation graphs and how this stand-off approach will improve linguistic workflows and data management in language documentation and typology.
