I am having trouble searching the Termium database. Since the site was modified (allegedly "improved"), I am able to access the site's search page, but I am unable to do a search. When I attempt to do one, a message appears telling me that "This page can't be displayed." Has anyone else encountered the same problem? Does anyone have any suggestions to solve it?

Thank you all for your suggestions.

I have a better question.
I have an old Termium on a CD that installs into Windows 3.11.
It is local and complete as of that time...
How can I use it under Win 7?

Try refreshing your browser, and/or clearing the cache

Install and try Dec 4, 2015

But, really, Windows 3.1 was, what, 15 years ago? The Termium database has been so much enlarged since then that it is probably not worth trying.

I had a few 3.1 applications installed and running under XP. Since 7 has an XP mode, that would most likely work.

Termium itself does not have Russian I mainly work into. The real value of that old Termium is the extensive definitions and parallel terms in European languages one may need to generate new terms in unlisted languages.

Unusable now Dec 6, 2015

I've found that Termium is now unusable and my email to them got a reply telling me to clear my browser cache to solve the problem. That didn't work; I emailed back to tell them and just got another copy of the same email telling me to clear the cache. I told them I use Windows 8.1 with Firefox, information they totally ignored and their duplicated email only gave instructions for Windows Explorer. Fortunately, I don't need them to tell me how to clear the cache.

I do have a Windows 7 laptop, which I now rarely use and was planning on upgrading it to Windows 10, once that's been tested a bit more on other guinea pigs. However, I haven't yet tried to use Termium on that PC. It's a shame because I (used toicon_frown.gif ) find the context-related and detailed search results on Termium really useful.

Chromium Dec 6, 2015

I have found that if I connect through Chromium I am able to use Termium. I did a search on Google Chromium under "Termium;" one of the links gives me access to a form of Termium that actually works.

Link Dec 6, 2015

Here is the link that works for me on Chromium:

http://www.btb.termiumplus.gc.ca/tpv2alpha/alpha-eng.html?lang=eng&i=1&index=ent

When I enter this address in IE, I relayed to an unusable page.

On Windows 7 I've been automatically redirected to this page for a while. And the result is:

"ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE".

I should have added that I use Windows 8.1. also, I repeat, it works only with Chromium; it does not work with IE.
