In this paper a methodology is presented for extracting information about lexical translation equivalences from the machine readable versions of conventional dictionaries (MRDs), and a series of experiments is described on semi-automatic construction of a linked multilinguallexical knowledge base for English, Dutch, and Spanish. The authors discuss the advantages and limitations of using MRDs that this has revealed, and some strategies which were developed to cover gaps where no direct translation can be found.
