Actually, Mark Davis's suggestion was to translate the list of UniData
property names and property values (E.g.: "General category", "Decimal digit
value", "Uppercase letter", "Math symbol", block names, script names, etc.).
These labels should be relatively stable, as they are part of the standard
I mentioned the glossary only to make examples of terms which may be
difficult to translate, but I would *not* suggest translating the
glossaries: too much a do for nothing. I already tried that with Italian:
all I obtained was a list if Italian words which was just as obscure as the
original English list (or even more obscure, in some cases, as English
technical terms were often more familiar).
