Creating a glossary is simple and can greatly improve the recognition of names and acronyms that you use regularly

A Wordly glossary can help to improve both the accuracy of understanding what the speaker is saying and the quality of the resulting translation.

A glossary is a list of words that a speaker might say but are not common in the language the speaker is using. Adding a word to the glossary increases the likelihood that the word will be recongized correctly.

Good words to add to a glossary include unusual terminology for your organization, such as the names of people, products and groups. Acronyms are also good candidates for a glossary.

Glossaries are created and managed in the Wordly Portal. To create a glossary:

  1. Go to and select “Glossary” from the left-hand navigation menu. Wordly Glossary
  2. Click “+Add Glossary” near top right corner of the screen.
  3. Select the language of the words you want to add. A glossary can contain words in different languages when sessions will have speakers using multiple languages.
  4. Add words or phrases for each language. There should be one word or phrase per line.
  5. Click “Set as Default” so that this glossary will be selected automatically for your future Wordly sessions.
  6. Click “Save”.
