    Default glossaries for travellers of these terms

    Maybe we should be drawing up glossaries for travellers of these terms.
    (The source)

    Can I say "[...] glossaries of these terms for travellers." without shifting logical stresses in the original sentence etc.?

    Thanks.

    I prefer the second.

    I suppose I meant glossaries for travellers (containing these terms), but shifting certainly doesn't do any harm and may well be an improvement.
