Create glossaries in a flash


A webinar in two parts with Josh Goldsmith

Wish you could create high-quality translation and interpreting glossaries faster?

You can!

In these two hands-on webinars, we’ll explore how to use cutting-edge tools to shave time off preparation and prepare top-notch glossaries for your translation and interpreting assignments.

Session 1: Pull key terms from your documents with terminology extraction
We’ll begin this session by discussing how to create good glossaries and where to find terms, then explore three different tools for creating glossaries – with a tablet and stylus, from parallel documents, and with automatic terminology extraction.


  • Introduction to glossaries
  • Where to find terms
  • Glossary design and formats
  • Manual, semi-automatic, and automatic terminology extraction
  • Use your tablet and stylus to quickly create a glossary
  • Manually extract terms from parallel documents
  • Automatic terminology extraction from monolingual and bilingual texts

Session 2: Use Artificial Intelligence to understand terms in context and quickly generate glossaries
Artificial Intelligence is taking the world by storm. How can we use it to create glossaries, and what risks does this entail?


  • How AI works
  • AI and confidentiality
  • Why I’m not currently recommending ChatGPT for creating glossaries (+ the tools I prefer)
  • Create lists of terms and acronyms using AI
  • Use AI to see how terms are used in context
  • Automatically create monolingual and multilingual glossaries with AI
