In this paper, we report on a large-scale conversion experiment with on-line valency dictionaries. A linguistically motivated valency dictionary in Prolog is converted into a valency dictionary for a large-scale machine translation system. Several aspects of the two dictionaries and their backgroand projects are discussed, as well as the way their representations are mapped. "/'he results of the conversion are looked at from an economic perspective (fast coding for NLP), and also from a computational-lexicographic perspective (requirements for conversions and for standardization of lexicon information).
