Hi, community.

I've just realized instead of cast my the materials aside after every practice, I can start accumulating specialist knowledge and terminologies now - not wait until I enter the market.

So I wonder how do professionals keep glossaries? What tools and tactics do you use?

I've had a similar experience to this of vocabulary building. I feel it worked better for me to keep just a short list of vocab and expressions I found "useful" and constantly update the list than to try to keep an ever growing list of every new word I met which would be burdensome in memorizing (and caused anxieties and guilt for I was not able to review them every day). Maybe this observation is also relevant here when it comes to glossary building?
