Hi      J.A. de Vries,

thank you for your comments.
You are of course right. I do work with and on linux for about 15-20 years.
I agree, editors are a matter of taste. That is not my problem though, there
are so many for linux to chose from.
My problem was/is with regexpress'. I couldn't get into it again. Last time
I worked intensively with those was so long ago, that I forgot everything
about them. And now that I needed them, I couldn't get in into them again.
Especially after working for over 20 hours non-stop. Actually, I finished
this morning  at 10:00 creating these glossaries, that means 30 hours
I did try to learn and understand them again, but I just couldn't get the
feeling of it again. 
Since four years, I am a widower and I don't like celebrating holidays
anymore. At least for the moment, hopefully that will change in the near
So, I decided to start working on the glossaries, something I intended for
years and my colleagues kept asking about them since I shared my thoughts
with them about what we could do with the material we gathered over the
Now the work is done. I tested the glossaries with OmegaT and they work
perfectly. In total I've got more than 50.000 entries with in fact even more

To krackedpress,
I am not sure I understand your question/comment:

where do you get an "easy" documentation file that has this type of
search parameters and "coding"?"

But as I already mentioned, we gathered them over the years in various
forms. Like notes in text-files, scanned docs written on typewriter
converted with an OCR-software, even handwritten and many open-source
So yes, I did everything manually and I am very happy and relieved that is
done now.

I must thank Brian again for his help at the very right moment. He is right,
he practically has done the job for me and it was like a Christmas present.
I would probably (or better said theoretically) come to the same (or
probably similar) solution, but only after reading manuals for at least 2-3
days and experimenting for even much-much longer.
As I said, I was too exhausted and too much concentrated on the content of
the material, to be able to think clearly about the correct usage of
regexpress' and get the feeling for them again. Besides, I repeat, in this
task the most important think was to assure the quality and correctness of
the content.
