Hello,
I have been using Microsoft Language Portal (LP) for many years, including upon instruction from Microsoft themselves.

Now when I go to the usual web page, instead of the search function I get an all new page with "Downloads" or "Explore more".
So I thought they changed it from a web query page to a download function, however when I get into the downloads, there is no way to download anything, there are only explainer pages.

Hello,
I have been using Microsoft Language Portal (LP) for many years, including upon instruction from Microsoft themselves.

Now when I go to the usual web page, instead of the search function I get an all new page with "Downloads" or "Explore more".
So I thought they changed it from a web query page to a download function, however when I get into the downloads, there is no way to download anything, there are only explainer pages.

(The page is https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/language)

I am completely at a loss.

I have already sent Microsoft a query about it, but I was wondering if anyone who is familiar with it knows what is happening and, more importantly, where I can still search MS terminology on a daily basis.

Hello, Sara.

Probably the server is under maintenance.
To avoid the situation in the future I recommend you obtain the local copy of the Microsoft terminology by downloading MicrosoftTermCollection.tbx from the service when it is working . If you are a user of windows you can load the file to Xbanch to make use of the terminology locally. There are some else solutions, such as CAT tools.

Hope this helps
