When I tried to browse the KOG (KudoZ Open Glossaries) using the 3 separate drop-down lists for source language, target language and field, the result was always "No terms found in this glossary". When I search the same glossary (e.g. German>English Engineering (general), starting at the "major pairs" list on the left of the page, the correct glossary appears, with hundreds of entries.
(I was using Firefox browser version 1.0.6, but that's probably not relevant in this case.)

I noticed another bug Sep 10, 2005

Not sure if it belongs on THIS thread, but if not then please forgive me...in the old search function, I could search for a term such as "etat des lieux", and it would give me all results for that term WITH AND WITHOUT the "é" on the "e" (i.e., results "etat des lieux" AND "état des lieux"). Now it looks like we have to actually enter the accented character, and in doing so we will only come up with the results for that term WITH the accented character - meaning, if I want both types of results I have to do TWO searches.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Hi Oliver,

It should be possible to browse the KOG using the drop-down lists now. Thanks for reporting this problem.

Best regards,

Jason

Transliteration possible in new ProZ.com term search Sep 12, 2005

Hi gad,

The new ProZ.com term search provides a limited ability to transliterate diacritics and other accented characters. (The old search interface did not provide this feature.) To enable this transliteration, simply untick the "match exact phrase" option in the search form. Having done so, a search for "état des lieux" should return results containing both "état des lieux" and "etat des lieux".

I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Jason
