I just discovered that a large cache of glossaries in various languages is available for download via ftp from Microsoft's site. Here is the link. I downloaded the Hindi glossaries and they work just fine in excel.

The languages available are these (not an exhaustive list):

Hindi
Gujarati
Marathi
Tamil
Telugu
Kannada
Punjabi
Konkani
Urdu

Farsi
Albanian
German
Arabic
Chinese
Korean
Finnish
French
Hebrew
Hungarian
Indonesian
Japanese
Italian
Polish
Russian
Romanian
Spanish
Swedish
Ukranian

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/developr/msdn/newup/Glossary/

These glossaries contain the translation of the strings of text generated by various Microsoft softwares like Windows, MSOffice, etc., and will be immensely useful to those doing translation/localization of softwares, especially Microsoft products.

Bala, thanks for sharing Feb 27, 2006

It is a great find. These glossaries may be useful in future, especially when translating something for Microsoft because in such a case, we'd be able to maintain the consistency.
