Lingo 4.0 for the creation of subject specific glossaries Jun 9, 2008

Hi Carole,

You could try Lingo 4.0 Terminology Management System

Lingo 4.0 is a standalone easy to use terminology management system that allows creation and management of multilingual dictionaries in any language combinations. It is ideal for the creation of subject specific glossaries. Unlike a spreadsheet application or Word, it can easily handle very large amounts of data. It is Unicode compatible and can import and export XML (TMX) and text files, making it compatible with most CAT tools. Also, it is not very expensive.

A 30 day evaluation version is available at:

Good Tool Jun 10, 2008

I also use Lingo 4.0 everyday and I find it a useful and simple tool. When I bought it, one and a half year ago, it was not expensive.

There is only one limitation when I use it as my Swedish-Portuguese glossary: the words that begin with the letters å, ä, ö, don’t come out in the proper (Swedish) alphabet order when I print the glossary. This is not a big problem as most of my searches are done directly in the computer and not in a printed copy. And may be there is some option in the software to solve this which I am not aware.
