In this contribution, we discuss the (re-)use of the ELEXIS research infrastructure for lexicography in order to deal with terminological data. We present central aspects of the ELEXIS infrastructure and the standards it both applies and further develops. We also present TBX, which is the main standard used for representing terminological data. We describe in some detail the OntoLex-Lemon specifications, which result from a W3C Community Group and which play a central role in our work consisting in describing terminological data within an infrastructure for lexicography, as it supports linking knowledge organisation systems to a full lexical description. To exemplify this capability, we use multilingual terminology data, originally encoded in TBX, from the field of risk management.
