I have integrated in memoQ the search function for the online Microsoft glossary. I have just to press Control+ F3 to look for a term on that glossary. But unlike other online glossaries that I have setup in my memoQ, memoQ does not insert automatically the search term into the search field of the Microsoft page. I have to write manually the term each time.
Is there a way to achieve the automatic insertion ?

They changed the search string May 7

Change the search string from what memoQ currently has to this:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/language/Search?&searchTerm={}&langID=Greek&Source=true&productid=All%20Products

Don't forget, of course, to substitute your target language for "Greek": langID=Spanish, for example.

Thank you for your suggestion, May 9

I was already using that web path to the Microsoft glossary, but it did not work

also trying to configure the web search for Proz.com in memoQ May 14

Also I would like for memoQ to insert automatically the search term in the proz search engine and without having to specify each time the source and target language (first image below)

The key to this issue is how do you define the fields on the memoQ panel Edit search provider (second image below)

Doesn't work May 14

Those doesn't work for me, either, and for no one, I guess. Try contacting Kilgray themselves. They might reply, now that they have completed the monumental work of creating a new "Q"!

On the other hand, both Microsoft Language Portal and ProZ.com search work fine in the corresponding Trados Studio "Web Lookup" plug-in.
