New terminology on Microsoft Language Portal

The Microsoft Language Portal has been updated with terminology and UI translations from scores of international Microsoft products that have released over the last few months.

The newly added products (or newly added languages for existing products) will help you globalize and localize products quickly, efficiently and to the same style, tone and terminology standards as in localized Microsoft products. Four new languages have been added: Mongolian, Dari, Turkmen and UK English.

The updated data is accessible via the online search, the downloadable Microsoft Terminology Collection (TBX format) and the UI translations (SW TMs) available in CSV format to MSDN/TechNet subscribers.

  • Windows 7: Includes the terminology and UI translations for 26 “Language Interface Pack” (LIP) languages to release in the last few months.
