At the moment the publication of the first written Flemish Sign Language (VGT) Dictionary is in progress. It consists of VGT glossaries and allows its users to lookup the signs for over 2000 Dutch words. The signs are written in SignWriting. We have established an electronic representation of this sign language dictionary. Searching for signs starting from a Dutch word works straightforward. The opposite, receiving results ordered by relevance, has never been develloped before. In this paper we explain how we have worked out such a system.
