(Instead of buying IATE glossaries) I'm using TextWrangler to make my own glossaries for CT. I managed to get all the source terms, all the target terms and their "Relative value" (numbers like 1, 2, 3 ou 4 for the level of confidence).
I also use "/" as a delimiter for the source terms. It looks like this:
Now I wonder if this setting is OK, or if it can be optimized.
Is using "/" as a delimiter a good choice?
Should I use it with or without spaces?
Any advice, suggestion or opinion would be appreciated.
I wonder what woorden would have to say about this (tab delimited files
instead of tmx files for glossaries with multiple sources and/or targets). I have no opinion for the moment (too complex for me).
One more thing about IATE... What about Henk Sanderson's IATE glossaries? Do they contain the Relative Values (1, 2, 3 and 4), and comments like Obsolete and Preferred? I managed to import the last ones in my glossary, with Japanese equivalents : Preferred (O), Accepted (△) and Obsolete (X). Quite helpful when you have to choose between more than one term with the same relative value...

You asked for it...
Alain: He seems to have made a very nice job.
Absolutely, and you can ask for special versions. BTW, one of his versions is in the "CafeTran glossary format," which is exactly the version I abhor and which should be forbidden by law.
