If you're just looking for something like EmEditor, i.e. a text editor for Windows that can support large file sizes, there are many out there. I'd try out the software suggested at these pages:

  • http://stackoverflow.com/questions/102829/best-free-text-editor-supporting-more-than-4gb-files
  • http://stackoverflow.com/questions/159521/text-editor-to-open-big-giant-huge-large-text-files
  • http://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/questions/785/text-editor-or-reader-for-working-with-huge-files-in-windows
  • http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/free-programs-view-or-edit-very-large-text-files.htm

Many of the programs listed there are free, and most should have full Unicode support (hence be easy to use with non-English corpora.

I personally use Notepad++, and a colleague of mine swears by Crimson Editor, but I'm not sure if either of them support files as large as you need them to.
