Standards for retrodigitalised dictionaries. In recent years, text retrodigitalisation has been applied increasingly to dictionaries. Retrodigitalisation faces special problems in respect of both dictionaries of older language stages and historical dictionaries of Gennan currently in use. There are technical problems as well as issues ,?f computerisation that need to be addressed, but the main obstacle is the poor quality of lexicographical content and technique. Current retrodigitalised dictionaries show the limitations of retrodigitalisation, especially for systematic data retrieval. Cost-benefit analysis should be applied to each individual case. In case of doubt, the creation of new dictionaries should be preferred to the large-scale and expensive retrodigitalisation of older lexicographically antiquated works.
