Does anyone know what GIAA stands for as regards Microsoft Glossaries? And, btw, is the Microsoft Style Guide available in languages other than English?

GIAA is Microsoft terminology look-up tool Sep 4, 2006

I do not think it is mentioned in Microsoft Glossaries.

I am not sure it is used any more. Looks like Microsoft is in the process of changing localization technology (Glossaries etc).

Giaa is a Web-based tool that aids in the localization of software produced at Microsoft. Sep 11, 2006

Glossary-based Internet Application Architecture (Giaa) is a Web-based tool that aids in the localization of software produced at Microsoft. Giaa searches several databases that contain words and phrases within Microsoft. Microsoft International Language Services (MILS) regularly updates these databases to keep them accurate as words and phrases are changed and added. In GIAA you can search glossaries for both released products as well as search the glossaries for ongoing projects. In addition we have integrated terminology from the Giaa for Termbase and Terminology Query Center.

And, the Microsoft Style Guides for all languages than English are available in some Microsoft vendor's databox.

Can someone please tell me where to find the Japanese Microsoft Style Guide. I know someone mentioned the Microsoft Vendor's Data Box, but I don't know what that is or where to find it. Could someone send me a link or please tell me where to find it?

I need this urgently...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
