Hello, Does anyone know if I can construct a glossary using Word. I am typing up a lengthy piece of text which contains quite useful vocabulary. I would like to use an automated function to create a glossary that is not document specific.
Many thanks,
Rachel

Using Wordfast to create glossaries in Word Aug 11, 2003

You could download the Wordfast trial version at www.wordfast.net. You can then create and use glossaries of unlimited size. There are two ways to create Wordfast glossaries:
1. You can create a TXT document in Word or Wordpad and add a source term tabulator target term on each line.
2. You can create a Wordfast glossary with Wordfast and mark source with Alt+T, mark target with Alt+T and complete the entry in the dialog box that opens. You could start with method 1 and continue with method 2.

Regards,
Gerard

creating glossaries with wordfast Nov 12, 2008

I have a question regarding the entry by Gerard de Noord. Can anybody elaborate the explanations of the two ways to create a glossary. It is still not clear to me at all.
Thank you for your help.
