Lexicon Planet specializes in dictionaries and provides solutions which make full use of the new media and the power of computers.
The company benefits from over two decades of experience in dictionary-making and international publishing through its prime mover, Pierre-Henri Cousin, who as a publisher with Collins and Larousse has developed major reference programmes and edited widely-acclaimed dictionaries.
This combination of experience, innovative thinking and network of talent provides an efficient consultancy formula in today's fast-changing publishing landscape.
Dictionary and reference projects are complex undertakings which require a combination of technical expertise and publishing experience which is not always available in-house when you need it.
From the crucial stage of project definition to publishing launch, Lexicon Planet can assist with the implementation of a dictionary programme.
Reference text is often loosely structured, with a mix of representational and functional tagging. Long-term savings can be achieved through appropriate text structuring - whether for editorial work and updating, derivative products or electronic exploitation: transform passive content into a dynamic resource.
It is also important to ensure database compatibility with the SGML family - an industry standard which includes HTML and XML for web page construction.
Valuable resources often remain underexploited while there may be potential for coeditions or localization within new markets.
This requires careful preparation, research and negotiation, which is complex and time-consuming. Even if you have a department to handle this, you may benefit from outside help for specific projects.
What is called corporate communication is primarily a matter of internal and external public relations.
But what is often ignored is corporate language management, ie. the means by which the company deals with language competence at all levels, in particular with respect to terminology and multilingual relations. Haphazard handling of linguistic issues can prove costly.
