I'm not sure this is the right forum as I'm not posting about external resources, but I didn't know where else to post this!

For those not familiar with "bookmarklets" - they're just javascript links to facilitate searches. I copied the code from the Google bookmarklets, and simply changed the parameters and URLs to use the ones on the Proz site.

Each bookmarklet has two versions:

- one simply pops up a window where you can enter the term to search for
- the other type searches for any text you might have selected on a page, and if you haven't selected anything, it will pop up the search window (behaving just like the first)

So if you only get the second type (and it works for you), you get both functionalities and you don't need the first.


Here they are - simply drag them to your bookmarks toolbar, or copy and then paste the link to your bookmarks:

Search the Blue Board (if you're a member):
Proz.com Blue Board Search
Proz.com Blue Board Search Selected Text

Search the Forums:
Proz.com Forums Search
Proz.com Forums Search Selected Text

Search the Glossaries (all languages):
Proz.com Glossary Search
Proz.com Glossary Search Selected Text

They should work across most browsers and systems. They just make it quicker to search those Proz.com sections directly from any page you are visiting.

Let me know if you find them useful!

Cheers,
Monica

Works in Mozilla Firefox, too.

Is this allowed? Wow. I just did a search and found out that we can do this for any site.

Here are some interesting links:

you're all welcome :) Aug 19, 2004

Glad they are useful!

While we're at it - there's a couple similar ones for searching Dictionary.com, you can find the basic bookmarklets from the Dictionary.com website, the ones listed at the bottom, for "All browsers" - and here's the version that allows you to search text you've selected on a page:

Dictionary.com Search

Thesaurus.com Search

These too should work in most browsers.

... Mozilla/Firefox/Safari keywords searches Aug 19, 2004

Thought I might add this as well - for people using browsers like Firefox that allow specifying keywords for searches directly from the URL field ( explained here: http://www.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/keywords.html ), here are the Proz search URL's to bookmark and associate custom keywords to:

Search Blue Board:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=agency_list&agency_name_search=%s

Search Forums:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=search&include[forums]=1&search_term=%s

Search Glossaries:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=mt&outside_submit=1&mt_term=%s

If you're using Safari on Mac, you can download Sogudi and then use the same urls but with "@@@" instead of the "%s" bit at the end, like this:

Search Blue Board:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=agency_list&agency_name_search=@@@

Search Forums:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=search&include[forums]=1&search_term=@@@

Search Glossaries:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=mt&outside_submit=1&mt_term=@@@
