The paper discusses some problems related to entry classifiers in digital dictionaries. Information technologies offer great possibilities to linguists and lexicographers for the development of various dictionaries, especially for bi- and multilingual digital dictionaries. The authoresses' point of view is based on their experience from the development of the first Bulgarian-Polish Digital Dictionaries. The dictionaries are being developed in the framework of the joint research project 'Semantics and Contrastive linguistics with a focus on a bilingual electronic dictionary' between IMIBAS and ISS-PAS, coordinated by L. Dimitrova and V. Koseska. The experimental version of the Bulgarian - Polish electronic dictionary is prepared in the WORD-format and consist approximately of 20 thousand dictionary entries. The dictionary is used for creation of the lexical database (LDB) that is an entry point to the relational database (RDB) of the first Bulgarian-Polish online dictionary. The structure of the LDB allows synchronized and unified representation of the information for Bulgarian and Polish, which is a step towards the creation of online Polish-Bulgarian dictionary in the future.
