|SGML-Tools in the Dictionary-making Process-Experiences with a German-Polish/Polish-German Dictionary
|The paper gives a brief introduction to SGML and the motivation of its development. Different kinds of usage and three types of SGML applications are described: a) the analysis and annotation of existing texts, b) the standardization of existing texts, and c) the development of text structures. The annotational system is demonstrated by a short dictionary example. The consequences of SGML applications on the life-cycles of products (in our case a Polish-German/German-Polish dictionary ( are described. The dictionary-making process has changed particularly with the use of SGML-aware tools, that allow authors, translators and editors to work directly within the SGML-documents. The experiences with this new technology and how it changes the everyday work in publishing houses are described.
