Just yesterday I downloaded the newest version of the official German Microsoft glossary. MS glossaries change from time to time, and it is a good idea to stay up-to-date. They are available from the company’s ftp-site — and then you pick your language. When I opened the new ZIP file I noticed that now there are separate glossaries for the Macintosh versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Office, Messenger and MediaPlayer.

Macintosh terminology has always been a bit of a problem. While Microsoft has been developing comprehensive glossaries and has made them available to everyone, I have found it difficult to get my hands on “official” Macintosh word lists. Perhaps I wasn’t looking hard enough?
