"Lexicon Leponticum (LexLep) is a web-based, interactive platform based on the MediaWiki open source application. The aim of LexLep is to set up an interactive online etymological dictionary of the Lepontic and Cisalpine Gaulish language that is freely accessible for all users. In addition to information about linguistic and etymological features of the Lepontic language, it includes substantial data about the epigraphic, archaeological and historical context of the inscriptions as well. LexLep is a living lexicon comparably to other Wikis. Its content will constantly grow and be revised. In its current state LexLep is a valuable and innovative resource in Celtic historical linguistics; it must, however, be remembered that it is not a final, finished edition. "  +

"<em>Thesaurus Inscriptionum Raeticarum</em> (TIR) is an online edition of the Raetic inscriptions in the form of an interactive online platform of the MediaWiki type. It was created during an FWF-funded research project (no. P 25495) conducted at the Department for Linguistics of the University of Vienna. Funding ran from 24th June 2013 until 23rd June 2016. [...] The aim of the TIR project was a comprehensive collection, display and linguistic analysis of the inscriptions which are considered part of the Raetic corpus. The project therefore comprised the following tasks: * Collecting all Raetic inscriptions hitherto known, including those of doubtful status. * Examining the original inscriptions, and documenting them, including photos, drawings and photogrammetry. * Collecting and examining the secondary literature concerning both the individual inscriptions, and Raetic language and script, archaeology, and history in general. * Creating a database and online interactive platform capable of displaying the inscriptions in an online corpus, with all aspects of the inscriptions (linguistic, archaeological, and graphematic data) documented exhaustively."  +
