Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
Abstract: 
We present our progress in representing 150 Arabic multilingual lexicons using Lemon, which we have been digitizing from scratch. These lexicons are available through a lexicographic search engine (https://ontology.birzeit.edu) that allows searching for translations, synonyms, and definitions. Representing these lexicons in Lemon will enable them to be used by ontologies and NLP applications, as well as to be interlinked with the Open Linguistic Data Cloud.
