Internet term search
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Did you know that it is possible to enter a term at ProZ.com, and search Internet resources like Eurodicautom, Leo, Wordreference, KudoZ, Ectaco, Systran, Intertran and others all at once? The ProZ.com "Internet Search" is made for just this purpose. Consider bookmarking this time-saver...

 http://proz.com/search/internet_search.php

How to use it:
(1) Enter the term to search
(2) Enter the languages
(3) Select the resources to search
(4) Click "Search"

The search function will be contacting each of your selected resources at once. To view each result, click the tabs at the top of the page.

Note: Because the sites being accessed may send popup windows, this function is recommended only if you have a popup blocker (ProZ.com does not host popup ads.)

Terminology is a bit like snoring: everybody's doing it but very few people *know* they're doing it! (MR)

Yes, very useful tool (it has been around quite a while)!

The problem is that one has to click at each dictionary tab to see the results (they are not presented all together as each one is the result of a different internet search)

A small error which they have not fixed (they should remove the TIS search)

Welcome to TIS on the Web version 2.4
 
Please note that as a result of the migration of TIS data to IATE, the new interinstitutional database, TIS on the Internet will no longer be updated. We shall inform you in due course of further developments.
