[EN] This paper presents a set of Bilingual Dictionary Drafting (BDD) methods including manual extraction from existing lexical databases and corpus based NLP tools, as well as their evaluation on the example of German-Basque as language pair. Our aim is twofold: to give support to a German-Basque bilingual dictionary project by providing draft Bilingual Glossaries and to provide lexicographers with insight into how useful BDD methods are. Results show that the analysed methods can greatly assist on bilingual dictionary writing, in the context of medium-density language pairs.
