lookedup4you: studerende, kunder og online-leksikografi
lookedup4you: Students, clients and online lexicography. Seventeen BA students at the
University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg, Germany, have developed a lexicographic online
reference tool with young users as the target group for a client, Verbraucherzentrale Nordrhein-
Westfalen, Germany. The online reference tool is based on a specialist system, an alphabetic
approach and search options. For this project, lexicography was defined as an opportunity to
structure information and as a tool that would meet the client’s needs. The project included all
the processes involved in the production of lexicographic online reference works; the definition
of a concept designed to persuade the client; the development of a prototype; testing this
prototype in consultation with the future users of the reference work; lemmatisation; writing the
articles; the production of images and films; the conceptual design and production of quizzes for
the reference work; and all the computer programming and design work necessary for a project
of this nature.
