As I am working with several language pairs, I'm wondering if it's possible to create a combined glossary, for example, with legal terms. It would look like: language1 > language2 > language3 > language4. I am working with OmegaT+ and I have no idea if it will recognize such glossary file. I thank you all in advance for your advice.

Not OmegaT+ Oct 24, 2011

This forum is for OmegaT, not OmegaT+, which is a different product. I think they have their own yahoo users' group.
(Sorry if this is a repeat post. The first time it didn't seem to "take.")

OmegaT+ split off from OmegaT a long time ago, and the glossary function of OmegaT has developed substantially in the mean time. For OmegaT+ queries, visit their web site:
http://omegatplus.sourceforge.net/
or join their user group:

OmegaT's native glossary format is language-independent, so any glossary present in a project will be used for it, no matter what the source language. Also, the native format has only three columns, in which the third column is a comment column.

OmegaT also supports TBX (to some extend), which allows one to have multiple languages in a single file, and specify the languages per term, but I'm not sure if OmegaT's TBX support supports that. You can ask on the OmegaT user group: OmegaT@yahoogroups.com.

OmegaT+ does not support TBX at this time:

but its native glossary format is similar to that of OmegaT.
