Why would not create a glossary of words "exotic", those that appear in italics in the brief descriptions (English and French), with definitions?

Wiki already does this pretty well??
I have succeeded with every one of those above I tried except "Widian" !!! (Where is this used in a WHS context and what does it mean? The only use I can find of it on the Web is as a "Person of Indian descent who acts White"!!)
Some needed translation to English first in order to use English/US Wiki e.g "Quatre-vingt-quinze thèses" but others eg. "Grand Derangement" asnd "Aboiteau"even US/English wiki coped with as recognised terms - it even recognised "Pisé" as "Rammed Earth"!
"English" wiki sometimes seems to do better than "Fr.Wiki" in terms of depth e.g "Restinga" in English is reasonably full article whilst the Fr.Wiki article is a single line.
