Give Feedback on Terminology used in Office 2007 and Windows Vista

We just opened another Microsoft Terminology Community Forum. The forum includes terminology that was used in Office 2007 and Windows Vista. If you speak one of the following languages, please consider giving us feedback on the translations we used in your market: Arabic, Brazilian-Portuguese, Chinese (simplified and traditional), French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish.

Your feedback will be reviewed by our language specialists and local market experts who will update our terminology glossary accordingly. The updated terminology will then be considered for inclusion in the next version of Office and Windows.

Chinese (traditional)










To enter suggestions, you need to first sign in using your Windows Live ID. If you don't have one yet, you will find out how to do this during the sign in process. Afterwards, you will be able to view the glossary and the links you need to click on in order to enter a new translation or to vote for an existing term. You will be prompted to register for the project before you can actively contribute. During the registration process, you create a "friendly name" that will be associated with your votes, comments, and translation suggestions. We will display the friendly names of the top contributors on the Terminology Community Forum page once the project is completed. To see an example, check out our Dutch "Thank you" page for our last terminology project, Windows Live.


Once you have signed-in and registered, you will be able to leave your feedback. The forums will be open for community participation until August 22.
