I can't believe I can't figure this out, but I have been working with the Wordfast manual and reading stuff online, and keep getting advised to create a Glossary using Word or Excel, and then open it in Wordfast using the Select Glossary button...which I can't find anywhere. I have a "glossary lookup" button, which when I select it rightly tells me that no glossary has been selected.

Where am I going wrong????

Quality check, Glossaries tab Jun 9, 2005

you need to go to Worfast settings (last icon in the menu bar), click Quality Check and then click Glossaries tab. You will find Select Glossary, New Glossary, Index and Edit buttons there.

That's how it is in WF 4.x versions, I'm not sure about WF 5, though.

Click the little f logo to enter settings.

Then select the tab "Terminology" and voilá, there you have it.

This is for the newest version, v.5.
