Hi,

Internet Explorer 7 has a embedded search bar and it can accept several search providers. I would like to insert Proz's Kudoz search as an option in this bar. The idea is that when I insert an expression in the bar, the Kudoz search is invoked and opens up already with the search results. Has anybody a suggestion to achieving this? Thanks in advance.

Hi Laura,

This solution also looks very interesting. Thanks!

What I was really looking for was a solution for the Internet Explorer 7 embedded search bar. I wonder if there is a solution for this.

Rgds,
Salvador

Steps Jun 5, 2008

Hi Salvador.

The first thing you need to do is to use the Kudoz search with the parameters you want to use, i.e. languages, whole words, exact phrase, etc.

Go to the source file and in the find box, enter '?sp=ksearch&submit=1&term=TEST'. The first instance will be highlighted.

Copy the whole line until 'submit=0'. Paste it on Notepad and modify it so your code should start with '?sp=ksearch&submit=1&term=TEST' and end in 'submit=0'. 0 is the number of results, so you should modify it accordingly with a different value. The default is 50.

Add 'http://www.proz.com/' at the beginning of the code; i.e. 'http://www.proz.com/?sp=ksearch&submit=1&term=TEST....

That's the code you'd need to use in the next step 'http://www.proz.com/?sp=ksearch& ... submit=50'.

Go to this website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/searchguide/en-en/default.mspx?dcsref=http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx# and follow the instructions.

If you use more than one pair, you can modify the codes even more. You can repeat the steps to get the code, or better yet, just add them manually. The value of the codes are in the source file. For instance: 'value="eng" selected>English'. Just substitute the three-letter language codes in you code (link). Good luck.

If you were using Firefox, there's a better option: Quicksearches. With that feature, you can search the Kudoz glossary and database, directly from the address bar. I published an article about the many features Firefox has and are particularly useful for translators. Here's the article: Internet & Applications for Translators. Scroll down to Quicksearches for more information.

Regards,

Claudia

I'm glad I was able to help. One thing I forgot to say --I assume you did catch it, is to enter the word 'TEST' in the search field.
