The project aims at creating an electronic reference book in eight languages ​​for the terminology in paleoslavistics (paleography, codicology, linguistics, literary studies). The project aims at standardization and functioning of the conceptual apparatus in the scientific issues, covering the medieval Balkan manuscripts, in three languages ​​(Bulgarian, English, Russian). The unique for such initiatives in the humanities connection between the created conceptual standardized apparatus for description, research, publication and translation of medieval texts and the key words and concepts used in bibliographic descriptions is taken into account. The intention is to create a smart environment to help compile different types of lists based on existing XML documents. The purpose of the glossary system is to provide solutions for existing or future projects in the field.
