So your usage pattern is to put the glossary? stuff somewhere in the script and don't collect it in a special place? That makes sense as it follows the old C++ rule "declare just before first usage". I like it this way.

I know, with IOS I thought about an desktop extension wherer you can edit a MDP file and get the translation automatically synced to all users. The source-code could only be on your system, or on the user's system that need to change the text as well. Robert
