Hi everyone, I have a question (which I also just posted over on Proz,com @ Looking for MS Word addons/toolbars for searching for online terminology (Translator resources)).
I am looking for MS Word addons and toolbars allowing me to search various online dictionary and translation search engines (such as Linguee, IATE, Mymemory, etc.). I know about the Terminotix Toolbar (http://www.terminotix.com/index.asp?content=brand&brand=13&lang=en), and vaguely remember that there are quite a few more, but can't for the life of me remember their names. Anyone here know of any more Word toolbars for searching for online terminology?

I just found a few listed here: WordLo: Free Online Terminology Tools (but I know there are more/better ones out there somewhere!)

Michael

This is focused on Greek language pairs pairs but it can be extended to include more.

The page you refer to does not list this mutli-dictionary search tool

Thanks Spiros, it looks interesting! Kind of like IntelliWebSearch or Multifultor.

I wonder of there are any more toolbars out there though, which offer individual buttons inside Word for each individual search site? I actually like the Terminotix implementation, but it isn't flexible/customisable enough.

And here is MagicSearch revamped. It does not provide a search bar, but it produces automatically a Word macro with your selected language pair.
