Hello everyone,

Does anyone know an easy way to create bilingual glossaries in Excel or Access? I would like to be able to enter a term in English and then the equivant in French or Spanish, and then be able to create French-English and English-French glossaries, etc.

Is there some template that can help you do that?

2 columns in Excel Jun 26, 2005

In Excel, it's easy: make a 2-column spreadsheet with a term in language A in one column and the matching term from B in the other column. The difficulty can be when sorting, because Excel doesn't sort exactly alphabetically all the time.

In Access you would need, again, a table with two columns and a form with two fields, one for language A and one for language B.

I have a spreadsheet with 10 languages: a decalingual glossary of sorts.
