Since we all know by now that the Old ProZ.com term search will sometimes find something, when the New ProZ.com term search can't (even though it is in a glossary!!!), and vice versa, can you please add the following feature:

When the user runs a search using either the New or the Old system, the system runs a background search in the other system, and if something is found, warns the user to also try the other system. This would save us all having to remember that the system is broken, and check in the other system, every single time we run a search.

Please, please, please!

Michael

Dear Michael,

Could you please submit support request and provide some specific details about the problem you're experiencing? Please provide such information as the exact term(s) you are unable to find in the new term search and your complete search criteria. Sometimes only one criteria indicated may change search results.

That will help site staff take a better look at the issue you're experiencing.

Thanks in advance.

Bests,

Yana
