I want to see a list of Hebrew/Greek words that are translated "love" for example. Is that possible with Accordance?
List of Greek/Hebrew words translated by same English Word

Yep, and it's really easy. You'll need to use a key number text - a translation that has been tagged with Strong's numbers or G/K numbers; one example is the ESVS. Then search the ESVS for "love", open the search details (button shown in the screenshot), and the Analysis tab will list the Greek/Hebrew words.

Jonathan's suggestion is one that works for a specific translation and is the simplest way to go. It's the way I generally use as well.
However, another option is to use a lexicon (the most common being Louw-Nida and BDB - but the examples will work on BDAG or Halot, or any of the lexica..
Open the lexicon, select "English Gloss" in the search bar, and then type "love". You will get a list of all the words the lexicon associates with love. So it depends a little on what you are trying to do.
See a translation's usage? Or get a feel for the range of words more broadly. (for "love" they should be pretty co-extensive)
In Louw-Nida, because it's a semantic domain lexicon that groups words by their general meaning, most of these words are found in "C Love, Affection, Compassion (25.33–25.58)" It's a nice little lexicon actually.
