Hi all

as you may know in google search engine, one can select the option "pages from ...".

How can one look for "pages from the USA"?

Any tip?

Thanks

Francesca

Domain might be the key Jan 12, 2006

One option would be to type .us into the box Domain in the Advanced search options. This, however, will only return pages which include the country code .us and will leave out all the .com and such pages.

Good luck.

What about Google Local? It's not what you're looking for, but it may help

Ingo and Patricia,

but the problems still remains...

If for example I want to look for "translation companies" in France, I can go to www.google.fr and I have the possibility to select "pages from France", otherwise I'll have pages from anywhere on the world.

It seems this doesn't work with USA!!!



Thanks anyway

a possibility Jan 12, 2006

my suggestion is
1) try "translation companies" Georgia (do all 50 states)
and start from www.google.com
not www.google.co.uk or whatever you may be using in Italy

2)the American Translation Association should also be able to help you
www.atanet.org

3)proz also has a directory which can be sorted by country

HTH

Language Tools Jan 12, 2006

From the home page in Google you can select "Language Tools", which gets you to another search page. There you can select "Pages written in"... A list of languages, and/or "Pages located in"... A list of countries.

Regards,
Cristóbal
