Hi,

Today I posted on my translation blog something that might interest you. It's an article about using Google Books for terminology searches. I found out that Google Books, when used together with a Firefox add-on called "Add to Search Bar", can be very productive and speedy. The whole thing is very simple, and it takes only a few minutes (or seconds!) to set up.

If you're interested, please follow the link below and visit my translation blog "fidus interpres":

Firefox 3.5.2 not compatible Sep 3, 2009

Hi Fabio,

thanks for the tip, but the search add-on seems not to be compatible with the current Firefox version 3.5.2. Is there another way to make it run?

Kind regards

Noe

I think it is Sep 3, 2009

Hi Noe,

I have Firefox 3.5.2 myself and the Add to Search Bar add-on is running OK. I don't see any compatibility issues, at least not with the English version of Firefox 3.5.2.

Have you tried to install the right add-on (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3682)?

Noe, thanks for the Intelliwebsearch strings Sep 3, 2009

I use Intelliwebsearch too, and the strings you provided will certainly be helpful.

Thanks a lot!
