Web portals have been one of the first web services that have helped users to find the information they need in the ever expanding World Wide Web. A web portal is basically a website that groups links to information available on the web. These links are selected based on certain criteria. Some web portals group links that pertain to a certain interest e.g. tennis sport. Such a portal is sometimes classified as a vertical portal since it may include several categories like history of tennis, biographies of players, manufacturers of sport attributes. Horizontal web portals, on the other hand, group links to a specific category of resources. Dictionary portals are a good example of that.
In this chapter we will describe the present landscape of dictionary portals. First, we will look at the typology of dictionary portals that has been offered by Engelberg and Müller-Spitzer (2013) . Then we present the results of a survey that has been conducted in the context of the COST Action ‘European Network of e-Lexicography’ (ENeL) . In that survey we made an inventory of dictionary portals presently in operation (see 49.2.3. on Inventory of Dictionary Portals). Based on that survey, we will have a closer look at what dictionary portals have to offer to the user. Finally, we dwell on possible future developments of dictionary portals.
