I just came across this site and haven't been able to figure out how to use it. Can anyone explain what this is all about and how to use it effectively?

I also just discovered this explanation:

Neat tool Jul 28, 2005

Hi Kim,

A neat tool, thanks for posting it. Now we just have to work out how to flip the language directions (presumably by rearranging the order of the Google attributes).

Click Help to get dead simple instructions on how to search for bilingual websites (or websites with bilingual links) containing your search key. To give it a try, just enter "financial instruments" for EN-DE and see what happens.

Hi Robin, so it finds bilingual sites! In other words, direct translations of the source text. I always considered "parallel texts" to mean source and target language texts that deal with the same topic.

I've been meaning to suggest something similar to some friends.... Jul 28, 2005

who are experts in computing. The only thing I'd like to see added is the possibility to search certain international institutions, such as the EU (inurl: eu.int), the UN, the WHO etc...

Thanks a lot! Jul 28, 2005

I was using that method mainly by consulting the canadian government websites (for English and French translations), but now I can extend it to other languages!
Great!

If you want to see the html source code for these searches you can do this (at least in Internet Explorer 6).
In the frame on the right (that contains the list of searches) do a right mouse-click.
In the resulting pop-up menu, select "view source".
This opens the html code in Notepad, and you can save it on your PC and study how it works.
(I was not able to find the URL for this file by looking in the source of the main page, a method that sometimes works when you want to see the definition of the content of a browser frame.)
