Do you know the situation:

  • Some of your requirements are written in German
  • Your development team is located partially in Germany, partially in non-German-speaking countries
  • Your management wants an “internationally comprehensible documentation”

Simply add one column to your glossary table for every language that you need to support, see the following example:

Term (EN) Definition Translation DE
<Term-1> <definition-1> <German-translation-for-term-1>
<Term-2> <definition-2> <German-translation-for-term-2>
