Dear colleagues,

Dear colleagues,

I am one of those who is tired of keeping glossaries in Excel or Google Sheets.
- These tools are too heavy to work with
- Adding new terms requires much effort
- Searching across multiple sheets or files is too time-consuming and sometimes ineffective
- Real-time collaboration is inconvenient, permission management rules do not meet our needs
- Integration with online and offline CAT tools is impossible

Thatʼs why I am working on to build an online glossary management tool, and I would like to get some feedback from translators.

I can share a screenshot so that you can imagine what it looks like.

Can you please donate a minute to fill in the following survey:
https://uzeconomist.typeform.com/to/HWVC1z

The online tool is going to be a single dashboard to manage all your glossaries, adding and searching terms across all projects will be super easy, and you can share your glossaries with your team members (different access types: view, edit, suggest, etc.)

Thank you,
Hamza

I just completed your survey, and indicated that I would like to test your tool, but I think you forgot to include a means of getting people's email addresses in your survey.

Landing page is almost ready Nov 17, 2018

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your interest.
I am participating in a 2-day hackathon organized by Garage48.org with this project. The landing page will be ready tomorrow and I will announce it here so that people can subscribe to get an early access.

Actually, this idea came to my mind 2 years ago. It seems now it is time to realize it!

Thanks,
Hamza

Hello Rolf,

The service we are going to build is not about searching terms from available sources, it is about to keeping your own glossaries in one place.

I will tell more about its features as soon as our landing page is ready.

Kind regards,
Hamza

What are "own" glossaries? Nov 18, 2018

Let's separate the terms. There are
1 - own dictionaries = files that could reside on your hard disk (xls, tbx, txt, ...)
2 - virtual books = dictionary software bought from publishing houses
3 - web sources, accessible via a browser

If I understand you rightly, your service handles only #1. Omni-Lookup handles #1, 2, and 3 simultaneously.
