You can read about a new version of this tool (December 2015) here: Magic Search [Reloaded].

Magic Search (One page search results of multiple dictionaries)

A new search feature has been developed and added to the Translatum tools tab on the left. Once you click Translatum tools you will see on the top right the Magic Search form. (You can also add it as single-click functionality from your browser or search from MS Word using the search macros).

Enter for example the word board and click Search (see an image file with this search—click on magnyfing glass to view properly as this is a huge image of 41,000 pixels height).

Wait for about 10 seconds. The form will search multiple dictionaries and load them all in one page. You have two scrolling options. One for the outer part of the window (scrolling among individual dictionaries) and another one for the inner part of the window (scrolling in any specific dictionary), i.e. you can use the scroll wheel of your mouse and move further out or further in to change scroll mode.

You can also click on links or do further searches in one of these dictionaries without affecting the search results of the other dictionaries.

On the top of the search results there is a list of the dictionaries searched. Clicking on it will take you to that specific dictionary.
On the bottom of each dictionary there is a Back to top link.

Currently, the system supports the following language pairs:


English -> Greek
French -> Greek
German -> Greek
Italian -> Greek
Spanish -> Greek
Greek -> German
Greek -> French
Greek -> Italian
Greek -> Spanish
Ancient Greek -> English (Including 2 Bible sites)
English -> Ancient Greek
Greek Monolingual
English -> French
French -> English
English -> German
German -> English
English -> Italian
Italian -> English
English -> Spanish
Spanish -> English
English -> Portuguese
Portuguese -> English
English -> Russian
Russian -> English
English -> Japanese
Japanese -> English
English -> Chinese
Chinese -> English


Enjoy!

In Greek:

Πώς λειτουργεί

Κάνετε κλικ στην καρτέλα Translatum tools πάνω αριστερά, αφού ανοίξει η καρτέλα, πάνω δεξιά της θα δείτε το Magic search, επιλέγετε γλωσσικό ζεύγος και κάνετε αναζήτηση.

Προστέθηκε το Εννοιόλεξο (θησαυρός συνωνύμων και άλλα εργαλεία) στην αναζήτηση Greek monolingual. Αφού εμφανίσει τα αποτελέσματα, για περισσότερα σχετικά συνώνυμα, πατήστε το Γνωμικά κ.ά. και στη συνέχεια Αναζήτηση γνωμικών.

Και απ' ό,τι μαθαίνω, η ηλεκτρονική έκδοση θα είναι πάντα πιο ενημερωμένη από οποιαδήποτε έκδοση εκτελέσιμου αρχείου για εγκατάσταση στον υπολογιστή.

Τώρα πλέον, όποιος δεν ψάχνει να βρει τα κατάλληλα συνώνυμα, δε θα έχει καμία δικαιολογία :Ρ
