The Arabic and Latin Glossary is a dictionary of the vocabulary of the Arabic–Latin translations of the Middle Ages. It unites the entries of all existing Arabic–Latin glossaries in modern editions of medieval works.
The Glossary has a double aim: to improve our understanding of the Arabic influence in Europe, especially with respect to scientific vocabulary, and to be a lexical tool for the understanding of Arabic and Latin scientific texts.
It is currently based on 42 sources, which cover medicine, philosophy, theology, astrology, astronomy, mathematics, optics, botany, and zoology. The texts were written by the following Arabic or Greek authors:
    Abū Maʿšar (Albumasar)
    Abū l-Ṣalt (Albuzale)
    al-Biṭrūǧī (Alpetragius)
    al-Fārābī (Alfarabius)
    Ibn al-Ǧazzār
    Ibn al-Hayṯam (Alhazen)
    Ibn Rušd (Averroes)
    Abū Muḥammad ʿAbdallāh ibn Rušd (Averroes Iunior)
    Ibn Sīnā (Avicenna)
    Ibn Tūmart
    al-Kindī (Alkindi)
    Yūḥannā ibn Māsawayh (Mesue)
    al-Nayrīzī (Anaritius)
    Nicolaus Damascenus
    al-Qabīṣī (Alcabitius)
    Ibn Zakariyyāʾ al-Rāzī (Rhazes)
    Ṯābit ibn Qurra (Thebit ben Corat)
The Glossary is growing constantly. At the moment, it contains the entire letters A to C and parts of the letters D (dact–diu) and E (ema–esch).
The Latin-Arabic version currently comprises 3.803 Latin lemmata with 11.280 corresponding Arabic expressions and 22.768 searchable quotations. The Arabic-Latin version comprises 5.951 Arabic lemmata.
