Functionality
Good, but there is no chance to add the same term to different categories with individual descriptions. It permits only one term at all cat.

Ease of use
Good, but you believe that different categories will work as different glossaries, but it is not true.

Support
Excellent.

Value for money
Bad, if you expect more for the meaning of "categories". Good, if you have only one term to share between different categories.
I used this to: Technical glossary with translation. I am disapointed!

I cannot share i.e. letter A with English description and letter A with French description. Because the terms (titles) are the same you can have only one (even with 2 different categories).
Owner's reply: A term is unique per language, just like a word. Our extension allows same title for terms of different language but not for terms of same language like the customer wants instead of using native Joomla multilingual functionality which is supported by Alter Surveys.

There are neither glossaries with duplicate terms of same language nor i.e. wikipedia pages with same URL but different language.

We will not change this behavior, otherwise it breaks the logic of terms highlighting: if there are multiple terms with same title of same language and this title is listed in the text, which description should be displayed?!

Masterpiece


Posted on 16 September 2014
Alter glossary is outstanding! It is a masterpiece component. I'm so grateful to have stumbled upon a powerful component as this one. All these features must say something; it is just the best glossary. And when you need the developers, they are there for you, very professional and supportive. I asked for a few more features, and yet they had them fulfilled.
...looks that all products from AlterBrains are well codded and do what they offer. This is not cheap product from them, but what you will get is exactly for what you pay... and support is ready help you even with implementation to another component!

Set-up is easy, but functionality is perfect! ...if you need, just do not await for something, for me does not exist better solution!

The best glossary


Posted on 03 July 2013
This is a great must-have extension. After purchasing several glossary components from other companies without satisfaction and with many issues, I decided to try Alter Glossary. It had no reviews, but I was amazed at what it had to offer.

Apart from being a well written and coded component with features described in the documentation really working, the level of support goes beyond anything I have had before. Moreover, the folks at AlterBrains took the time to configure it to work with other components, and did so quickly. Our site has over 15 components from other vendors, and AlterBrains functions and integrates easily.

Layout and configuration flexibility for a great price! I asked if they could add Komento to the glossary, and they did it! If you are looking for a glossary, don’t hesitate. A big thank you to the AlterBrains team.
