I have been having some Internet connectivity problems for a few days now, but it seems to be a lot better today.

However it takes me about 5 attempts to look up any words using the online dictionary, Leo

http://dict.leo.org/

as it keeps timing out. Other websites are working fine.

Anyone else having problems with Leo?

Yes, but not any more Aug 8, 2011

I did earlier on today, but it seems to be back to normal now for me.

Have you tried via the Web Term Search in Proz?

Or try http://www.dict.cc/ if you want a general dictionary.

Not now, but it has had problems before. Aug 8, 2011

I am not doing anything from German at present, but when I was, I used Leo quite a lot; however, it had periods of unreliability. Then I discovered Beolingus

which seemed to me to be as good as Leo and more reliable.
