Specialized lexicography by means of a conceptual data base: establishing the format for a multilingual marine dictionary

Abstract : The Hydrographic Dictionary published by the International Hydrographic Bureau (Monaco) was computerized as part of the European research project Dhydro. The aim of the project was to develop a multilingual electronic dictionary with an interactive editorial infrastructure based on the new information technologies. This paper will firstly provide a summary of the analysis that has resulted in the hitherto followed lexicographical approach being abadoned in favour of a monosemic perspective more suited for the management of a large number of source and target languages. This will be followed by a detailed description of the strategy that has enabled the tagging of the surface structure of each monolingual volume of the dictionary in accordance with the prescriptions of the Text Encoding Initiative, and the subsequent merging of all data in one single multilingual data base which conforms to the ISO 12 200 standard on the exchange of terminological data. Finally, the authors will show how XML records resulting from the retroconversion process will enable the reproduction of numerous variants of the dictionary thanks to the use of stylesheets (XSL Transformations).
