This paper describes the process of compiling a comprehensive Danish thesaurus at the Society for Danish Language and Literature (DSL) to be published in 2014. The thesaurus is mainly based on the sense descriptions and the lemma selection in our monolingual dictionary, Den Danske Ordbog (DDO). We will focus on the editing process and show how we use digital meth ods to establish annotated semantic groups which are afterwards automatically transferred to word class groups in the printed version of the thesaurus. The index constitutes an important part of the dictionary and will also be discussed, as will the future plans of making use of the thesaurus data, in particular in other dictionaries published by DSL.
