This problem may have been addressed beforehand but I couldn't find it in any of the forum topics.
To give you an example, I was searching for "UB" and "CR" (French to English) separately and together. I tried searching every which way and checked every available option - checked 'whole words only', 'match exact phrase' and every combination imaginable to no avail. I finally did a Google search where it led me to an entry in KudoZ as 'No. d'UB/de CR' which was exactly what I was looking for.
Why didn't my search bring them up? Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? This has happened on many occasions.
Many thanks in advance!

I never bother with the ProZ search engine Feb 13, 2009

I find that it isn't worth the time it takes. To search the ProZ site, I use Google and include "proz" in my query. Google will find any occurrence of a term on the site, whether it has been entered into a glossary or not.

The engine only works on searches 3 characters up Feb 13, 2009

Two characters call up too many fuzzy matches -- at least that's what I've heard.
