I read about it in Yahoo groups and know there is a development, but could not figure out if it is pssible yet or not yet.

If, yes, please explain how do to that if you have an experience.

Use "Search Term on the Web" option Aug 19, 2010


You can use the "Search Term on The Web" option from Terminology menu. It already has a configuration for searching on Linguee.

You can configure Swordfish to use almost any online dictionary. See "Searching Terms on the Web" section of the manual, under "Common Tasks".

There will be a standalone windows app for Linguee Aug 19, 2010

This is Gereon, one of Linguee's founders.

In a few months we will release a windows application which will make it much simpler to look up words in their context - no matter what program you are using.

The problem with standard swordfish-plugins is that you can only search for single words. Our new plugin will tell Linguee more about the context around the word you clicked on. This will enable you to find translated example sentences which use the searched word in a similar context as you are.
We think that this will be a feature no one has ever released so far.
