+1 for Susan's comments.
A multi-language GIS glossary (eventually) will be a real accomplishment
A few other thoughts you may have already considered:
I suggest maintaining either a LearnOSM glossary or the OSM wiki glossary,
but not both. One can point to the other. Or, the LearnOSM glossary could
be shorter, focused on beginners, and point to a more comprehensive OSM
OGC has a glossary  that's copyright OGC, but they might make it
available to OSM on request.
The wiki.gis.com glossary might be of use .
