I usually find nothing when I search for a glossary in Glosspost. I fill in as many categories in the search form as possible but am beginning to conclude that that is doing more harm than good.
I was amazed to see it is possible to achieve ten hits by just typing in meteorology in the search box. Are the other boxes really necessary? I get the impression they make your chances of success worse.
The more specific you get, the less hits you come up with. If searching for something really specialized, it's better to use the main keyword.
Also, as I translate only into English and therefore want source language to English glossaries, is it better to put the keyword in English or in the source language?
It is better to try one method at a time. This is because many GlossPost contributors come across their resources on single assignments, and may only have given the data linked to that particular assignment. We have seen multilingual resources listed as bilingual, for example, and have had to edit those parameters.
I am intersted in making succesful use of "Glosspost" and would welcome suggestions!
Good idea for a discussion. So would we (GlossPost administrators).
