Importing Massive MS Word Glossary into Multiterm

Hi all! I'm a newbie, and I'm still trying to figure out how everything works.

I have a lot of things I want to do that seem like they might be pipe dreams, but I figured I'd ask here. The biggest issue I'm having: I have an absolute mountain of data that I would love to leverage with alignments, TMs, and the termbase. But obviously none of the material was created with RWS tech in mind, so for example...

I have a Word document with 20,000 terms and definitions that would be swell to import into Multiterm somehow, but I don't know any way to get it into Excel format that would separate the terms and definitions from each other. Any ideas? I know I could theoretically create an empty termbase and manually add each term as I work, but... there's just too much!
