Heya Jim,

I'm hoping there's at least some consistency between how the terms are
formatted, either wrapped by specific "characters" (including punctuation)
or assigned specific styles.

Then you can write a macro that isolated all the find items into a new
document, table, whatever. You could even sort them, separate Spanish and
English, and output them into an Excel file directly.

I guess the key is what would work best in the situation you have,
