I just noticed that I can not use the search function anymore of http://www.microsoft.com/Language/en-US/Default.aspx

Anyone else experiencing this problem?
Or have I missed something?

I prefer offline resources that I can import to whatever TM and termbase software I prefer.
There are a bunch of MS terminology xls files on the net, I have an older one. I think I got it from MS, but I can't find it on their site now. They do offer tbx downloads though: https://www.microsoft.com/Language/en-US/Terminology.aspx

tbx Mar 20, 2014

Your termbase program might be able to import it. Tbx was supposed to be the termbase exchange format, exactly like tmx for TMs. It never really took off, though.
If you don't use terminology sw or it can't handle tbx, you can convert it to tabbed txt, which you can copy-paste to excel. Apsic Xbench is one option for the conversion.

The same thing happened to me yesterday, or maybe the day before. I was able to use again today, so it must be on and off. I was able to access the search page by going through Chrome's history and finding an old search result. It took me to that specific term, but English to Spanish was selected as the language pair. That enabled me to search for other terms from that search result.

I actually didn't go through the history, but it was one of the URLs Chrome showed me in the drop down menu when I started typing "terminología Microsoft" in the address bar, which is how I usually go to the website.
