Glossmaster is a multilingual terminology tool developed for ANLoc, the African Network for Localization? by IT46 in cooperation with the Kamusi Project, with the support of IDRC. It "contains a core list of 2500 information technology terms that have been selected from a wide variety of software applications originally written in English. [It includes] a definition for each term in English, as well as other information that will help clarify the underlying technical concepts."


As of 2010 there were completed terminology sets for: Akan, Amharic, Arabic, French, Kinyarwanda?, Lingala, Luganda, Songhay, Yoruba, and Zulu (which can be downloaded in CSV format from the IT46 or Kamusi sites). An upgrade of Glossmaster to version 2.0 was planned in 2011.
