In this paper, we present an approach for turning a traditional dialectal dictionary into a modern digitized and on-line linked dictionary. We describe steps that have been taken for the transformation of a former paper-based dictionary into machine-readable (semantic) web representation languages. This move opens the possibility of cross-linking dictionary data not only with other types of language resources, but also with many (scientific) domain descriptions that are already available in the Linked Data framework.
