As far as I know the Microsoft glossaries are at:

ftp.microsoft.com /developr/msdn/newup/glossary

The latest terminology for FRN, GER, SPA, ITA, SWE, DUT, FIN, DAN,
NOR, RUS, CZE, HUN, POL, TUR, GRE, BRA_POR and PRC is contained in
separate .ZIP files identified by language/country name. The
compressed files cover various Microsoft applications and systems, not
just the simple subset found in the Microsoft GUI Guide. The files
are comma-delimited ANSI files that should be readable by most
software products. (Compuserve users can also check under `Other')

This information is a few months old, but as far as I know, it is still
up to date.
