This article describes a set of initiatives in the domain if electronic dictionary distribution. Their basis is the DicoPro server, which enables secure access to dictionary data on a server. In the DicoEast and RERO projects, the goal is to acquire high-quality publisher data, convert it into numeric format, and provide access to dictionary entries for the participating institutions. We analyze the various problems that appear throughout this process and describe the solutions we found.
