Hi to all,

It's been a lot of time that I can't find *any* termi using the kudoZ search, which always gives me the 'no item found' message even if I know that that term is already present in the kudoz system

What can I do?

Thank you very much for any idea!

Let's see May 10, 2005

Did you write your words in "quotation marks"? It doesn't work, it's not like Google.

Hi Silvina
Could you give an example of a term you searched and the language pair so that we can try to reproduce it?
I've had this problem with Greek terms (due to the encoding, I suppose) but not with Spanish or English.

I got 80 hits from Kudoz search May 10, 2005

Hi Silvina,
I did a bilingual search under Search KudoZ search and there are 80 hits.
It may have been a temporary glitch. Try again

KudoZ Search vs. Search Glossaries May 10, 2005

Are you sure you're looking in KudoZ and not in glossaries?

Querida Claudia,


IT works!!
There's a difference between Kudoz search & Kudoz glossaries...
In search glossaries, the term search works and gives the right answers...

MUchas gracias otra vez
