Dear All,

Until very recently, I often relied on EU legislation to confirm terminology, and would simply add "eur-lex" or "bilingual display" to my search which would lead me to "bilingual display" options of EU official documents.

Suddenly, some two weeks ago, this resource / possibility ceased to exist, and any search now invariably lands on a very vague page, which so far has not let me search anything properly.

Here is the page:
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/advanced-search-form.html?qid=1396796212751&action=update

Here is another message:
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/Notice.do?mode=dbl&lang=pt&ihmlang=pt&lng1=pt,pt&lng2=da,de,el,en,es,fi,fr,it,nl,pt,sv,&val=255842:cs

Here is an example of a simple search.

"medical practitioner" bilingual display

Whereas before I would simply type this on Google and would get several links to bilingual displays of legislation, when I now press the link I get this:

http://eur-lex.europa.eu/Notice.do?mode=dbl&lang=en&ihmlang=en&lng1=en,pt&lng2=da,de,el,en,es,fi,fr,it,nl,pt,sv,&val=310601:cs

Does anyone have an idea on how to work around this very upsetting problem?

Many thanks in advance
Ana Vozone

Emma, many thanks for pointing out this to me. I had not been able to find anything on this. Should I delete my post now?
