Description In this paper we present an implemented solution for post-editing dictionaries within the Lexonomy dictionary writing system interconnected with the Sketch Engine corpus management system. We follow up on the work on automatic dictionary drafting ("One-Click Dictionary") and assume a dictionary draft to be post-edited, or an existing (edited) dictionary to be extended are in place. We cover focus on features that enable lexicographers to obtain relevant corpus evidence or corpus-driven analysis in a user-friendly way from within the environment of the dictionary writing system and thus speed up their workflow. We exemplify the usage scenario in an ongoing project on Danish-English-Korean bilingual dictionary.
