As part of the ELEXIS - “European Lexicographic Infrastructure” initiative, the TCDH is using the Publex tool to develop browser-based publication software for XML-annotated dictionaries.

With the help of the software and an intuitive user interface, users can upload their dictionary data marked in XML and define the desired formatting for the dictionary by configuring the individual components. With these settings and the attached metadata, the dictionary can finally be published online on a platform provided by ELEXIS. Publex, thus, also enables users who do not have the appropriate infrastructure or technical knowledge to make their dictionaries accessible on the Internet.
