TitleDer lexikographische Arbeitsplatz – Theorie und Praxis
AbstractThe changes caused by the growing automatisation of processes in the lexicographer´s workstation and in lexicographic work, together with the ensuing needs of lexicographers and their demands for adequately targeted software, have not been discussed sufficiently in meta-lexicographic research. The aim of this paper is therefore to fill this gap, with a focus on academic non-commercial lexicography. After an introduction into the general functionalities of specific dictionary writing software, with the help of a real-life example we will discuss the lexicographic working environment, the new specific demands to lexicographic software as well as different tools. The final aim is to propose some recommendations for how to structure the lexicographic working environment to meet specific project requirements.
