This paper attempts to provide an account of an ongoing project on developing methods with software implementation for building multilingual lexical databases based on Princeton WordNet. The objectives of this project are not unique; several similar projects have been carried out to different stages. We have been implementing a combination of manual and automatic techniques. The result is an effective procedure of building lexical nets with acceptable precision. As the project has been in progress for several months now, our account is according to the partial results we achieved so far.
