Apple glossaries in different languages

In August this year Apple released glossaries (actually translations of strings from OS X Mountain Lion and iOS) for different languages, including Russian. The strings are available here: You need to have an Apple Developer account – just a simple registration process with no strings attached. The downloaded file has a .dmg extension. Currently I work on a Windows PC, so I had to ask my son to extract actual .lg files, as he has access to Macbook. Then I turned to my favorite terminology tool – Apsic Xbench. First I prepared files by changing their extensions to .ad. Just a couple of clicks (choose Mac OS X glossary in Xbench) and here it is – I can search translated strings!

    Small addition: to export strings as a TMX file click Tools – Export items and then choose TMX Memory in the Format drop-down list.
