I do not find any option to search the whole phrase as in the former Kudoz version. Therefore, I get too many answers when I enter two or three words (a phrase). Thank you,

It doesn't seem to be working May 12, 2009

Supposedly you have to put the phrase in quotation marks, but this feature doesn't seem to be working at the moment.

Fingers crossed that this is fixed soon. Meanwhile you can put the phrase into google

eg. "sede de dirección" english

or "término que busco" proz target language

Hello Maria and Lesley,

You can conduct a KudoZ term search for a complete phrase by checking the "Match exact phrase" box provided as an advanced option.

Please, give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Regards,

Lucia

Thank you May 12, 2009

Great, it is now working. I could not see that box yesterday or today. I do not know if I just overlooked it. Anyway, it is now working. Thank you.

No, it hasn't. Click on "Advanced Options" to open the bottom section of the search page, which includes the "Match exact phrase" box.
