The IATE database has been put into production in the EU's translation services in the summer of 2004. It is not yet accessible to the public. The URL you have used is a link to a test database; when we noticed that this url has been published in various newsgroups on the internet we had to
block the access to avoid performance problems. The system is today simply not ready to be used by the public. However, the developments that are necessary to make IATE available to external users with a satisfying level of service are ongoing.
The opening of IATE to the public is now scheduled for hte second half of March 2007.
Until then Eurodicautom will remain accessible (http://europa.eu.int/eurodicautom/Controller).
Please note that Eurodicautom had some technical problems recently. The system is, however, up and running again.
