## Description

I define a lot of words and abbreviations in a file that import it before “\begin{document}”. But in each document, I don't use all of them. For example I define 1000 words, but in my document I use just 20 words. I use XeLatex to compile my latex file (because I use Xepersian package for Persian typesetting), But It takes a lot of time to compile my latex file. I think that most compile time is spent for checking the words and abbreviations file, is there any way to reducing compile time?

No mwe.tex

## Evaluation

See the glossaries performance page. In general, if you have a large number of entries defined but you are only using a small subset then the most efficient method is to use bib2gls and glossaries-extra. I'm closing this as implemented now that bib2gls is available.
