Making multilingual glossary

The following clip shows how to create a multilingual glossary using AppleTrans editor. Basically, what you do is to create a tab-delimited table of words. You may find Excel is better doing this type of work.

You might notice that some entries have multiple translation for a language. Those variations are delimited by "\n" escape character. By switching languages in the preferences, you can use the glossary in any combination of languages.

Also note that you can lookup a word reversely from target language to source language. When AppleTrans cannot find a word, it attempts to lookup the word in the target language.
