Eurodicautom to IATE Migration

Hello!

In the past I was a frequent user of the Eurodicautom terminology dbase. Now I don't seem to be able to access it. Does anyone know if it has been taken down? (URL http://europa.eu.int/eurodicautom/Controller)

Also, I am having trouble accessing the IATE dbase that apparently is replacing the Eurodicautom. I keep getting a message that the server is down or not working. (URL http://domino.iec.ch/iev/iev.nsf/Welcome?OpenForm)

Has anyone else experienced these problems? Is there a fix?

Thanks very much!

Harold

IATE Apr 19, 2007

Hello Harold,

I think they have changed the URL. The new one is http://iate.europa.eu/iatediff/SearchByQueryLoad.do;jsessionid=9ea7991930d5527051ac74be4b2693be88e476f7f050.e38KbN4MchyMb40SbxyRaxyTb3n0?method=load

Best regards,

Oscar

Origin of the problem: wrong encoding of cookies with Internet Explorer Apr 19, 2007

Dear Harold,

I wrote to the staff of IATE a little while and here is the message they sent me :

Dear IATE users,

Unfortunately the IATE site has encountered a few problems in the last
couple of days. These problems appeared after an update of the IATE
servers during Easter weekend.

The typical error message users receive after launching a query looks like
this:

"The proxy was unable to fulfill your request because the computer does
not appear to be functioning properly. While attempting to communicate with
the server, the proxy encountered the following error: HTTP7766: error
reading response header (Connection reset by peer) .........."

Our technical staff detected that the problem is linked to a wrong encoding
of cookies on the IATE user's computers that occurs namely with Internet
Explorer. An immediate workaround is to remove these cookies.

How to remove the cookies from Internet Explorer ?

In the menu, go to "Tools", then "Internet Options", and in the first tab
"General", click on "Delete cookies".
Then close and re-open Internet Explorer. Then, reconnect to IATE.
This procedure can be repeated again later if needed.

In the meantime, our staff continues to work on a definitive solution to
avoid this problem in the future.

We apologize for all the inconveniences caused by this problem.

Please, feel free to contact us for any further question.

Kind regards,

Eurodicautom link redirects to the IATE Apr 19, 2007

It seems that this time Eurodicautom is down for good, the link now goes straight to IATE--at least for me. But I guess that was just a matter of time.
Harold, if you can't access the IATE, try the direct link: http://iate.europa.eu/iatediff/

... used to be a handy shortcut to Eurodicautom, which consequently now leads to IATE.

Web term search affected Apr 19, 2007

Hi,

I think Claudia is right, I also noticed that the eurodicautom search in the Proz WTS was redirected to IATE - unfortunately, it doesn't work from WTS. I guess Proz has to redefine the search function so I hope that it will be working again soon - I liked being able to search the Proz database AND Eurodicautom simultaneously!

I'm not sure the problem is with cookies. Apr 20, 2007

Just before Easter, I suddenly found that I could no longer access IATE or Eurodicautom (which was still live at the time).

This coincided with a windows security update - I removed the update from my computer and IATE has been working ever since. I don't have the details of the update, but I received it on 4 April (will find and add later today).

The same thing happened last year with another similar update - only that time it affected Trados, which was out of action for an entire week while I tried to work out what was wrong.

Now, whenever I have strange error messages of any sort, the first thing I do is check to see if there's been a Windows update!!

Agree, but I am still able to acess the site Apr 20, 2007

Hello Harold,

I have been experiencing problems as well, but I do insist
and, usually, it turns out that the site loads (Eurodicautom) (after some efforts).

Please try this link
http://www.foreignword.com/tools/dictsrch.htm

Best of luck!

Francis

Yes, I agree lingomania. After several "No matching entries found. Please modify your query" I miss Eurodicautom already...
I also liked the Eurodicautom interface better.

I second that, and go even further .. it's not just a little, it is a lot worse than eurodicautom.

A search for "medium" in EN-FR just gave me that same "nom matching entries" message, while this word has lots of meanings.

I have searched for a a certain number of terms without success. Normally, in EN-FR we still have Granddictionnaire which can be very helpful, but in NL-FR for instance IATE is a real PITA ! Gives the feeling this combination doesn't even exist...

Do you think we can submit a petition to have Eurodicautom back again ?

???!!! Apr 24, 2007

I'm glad I'm not the only one here that feels that way about IATE. I may be wrong, but isn't IATE supposed to be the OFFICIAL E.U. site for language resources?!

Eurodicautom vs. IATE Apr 25, 2007

Hi guys,
I agree with bot hof you Rob and Marco. This IATE thing seems to have no matching entries for almost anything! I thought the change from Eurodicautom to IATE would be a good thing, since IATE should be the official sire of the EU and I thought that after all the updating and upgrading they would combine the databases to make something better for all of us, but it seems I was wrong It's frustrating to get this "No matching entries found. Please modify your query" every single time.

I noticed that "no match" comes up all too frequently.....with Eurodicautom that happened about 15-20% of the time.

Mail to IATE May 11, 2007

I am planning on sending the message below to IATE. Any comments?

Dear madam, sir,

Me and several other translators (http://www.proz.com/post/557832#557832) have noticed that Eurodicautom found alot more queries than IATE...
Could you please explain why?

Thanks!

Best regards
