I saw the Gnome Glossary website:

the contact person.

I'm not sure how this project originated back then. I'd like to
pass on
the glossary tool that we use at Sun Globalization:

It requires user account which you can get immediately. You can find
terms (English and translated into about 9-10 languages) for Gnome
and export glossary for your language into a spreadsheet. I'd be happy

Young Joo, at Wordforge (Pootle, Translate Toolkit etc.), we are
currently working on expanding the Gnome glossary, refining both a
1000 word and a much larger terminology file, plus an acronym file.
It will be integrated into the Pootle interface, but will also be
available from a translation memory server, and for download.

So the glossary will be used as a translation memory, then?

It's important for us to know, in part because there are some verbs to
translate and if this file is just a reference or a glossary, then we'd
translate them as infinitives (i.e. "to open" instead of "open"),
otherwise (ie. if it is a translation memory) we'd keep the imperative
form as in English.

Definitely as translation-memory. So we do give priority to the form most likely to be used in localization tasks (usually not the infinitive, as you say).

The Wordforge end of this glossary project is progressing only in occasional leaps, when Youssef Chahibi or I find enough time to work on it. But we will get there... ;)
