The Dictionary Express method

Our cost and time saving method for creating dictionaries consists of 4 steps:

  1. corpus building
  2. automatic generation of the dictionary content
  3. post-editing
  4. publishing or deployment

Steps 2 and 3 are closely interconnected and typically carried out simultaneously. While some dictionary data are being generated, other data are already being postedited. The postedited data may affect the generation of the data for the next entry component.


The access to the Dictionary Express method is not through a tool or a user interface. The method uses the existing tools and interfaces of the Sketch Engine corpus query system and the Lexonomy dictionary writing system.

The added value consists in the unique workflows and in the sophisticated editor and data management developed by Lexical Computing.
