Katarina,

There are many choices that should do the job. Since this is internal, you probably don't need a commercial wiki. The two mentioned in Robert's email -- MindTouch and Confluence -- are both good products; in fact, we just finished a book that used Confluence wiki for the development, and we really like the way it worked for that project. However, they are probably more than you need for a glossary.

In addition to Confluence, I have used pbwiki (at pbworks.com), Tiki-wiki, and Twiki on various projects, and I've set up Tiki and TWiki on local servers.

Of those, I would probably go with Tiki for this kind of project, simply because it is easy to set up and run.

Of course, that's from very limited experience:-). You may want to check out http://www.wikimatrix.org/, which has information about well over 100 different wikis. The site has a nice wizard that will help you narrow down the choices and a comparison capability.

And, shameless plug, XML Press has a book (WIKI: Grow Your Own for Fun and Profit; http://xmlpress.net/wiki.html) that talks about using wikis in a corporate environment.

Best Regards,
Richard Hamilton
