Preview

This chapter considers the lexicographic needs of translators and explores how these might be better met in the age of e-lexicography. A variety of possibilities, covering both content-related and presentation-related aspects, are considered, including the combining of general and specialized content, the addition of frequency and terminometric data, the explicit identification of relations, the inclusion of additional usage information (including cautions against inappropriate usage), integration of more multimedia content, standardization in design of search techniques, introduction of customization options, and the creation of integrated collections of resources.

Keywords: translators; corpus-based resources; hybrid resources; integrated resources; customization; frequency data; usage information
