Does anyone know what happened to the Collins dictionaries over at www.wordreference.com?

The homepage seems to be working fine, but when I try to look up a word by filling in the blank fields and hitting the GO button, it redirects me to Yahoo!

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Thanks!

P.S.: I also need an alternate website, i.e. a very good EnglishSpanish dictionary (I swear by Collins, so I'm going crazy without it!). Help! icon_frown.gif

Collins OK, try Vox Dec 10, 2003

It's working for me, so it must be something with your system. When Collins doesn't work for me, I go to Vox.

Works fine Dec 10, 2003

I've just tried it twice and it worked fine. No redirection to Yahoo or something.

Regards,

Sonja

P.S.
You can try www.foreignword.com or use the Proz.com Internet search (from the menu choose KudoZ->Internet search). They too offer a search in wordreference.
