Free shareable, searchable glossaries for collaboration with anyone – how to search in glossaries based on Google Spreadsheets using Intelliwebsearch and similar tools (by Kevin Lossner)

Free shareable, searchable glossaries for collaboration with anyone – how to search in glossaries based on Google Spreadsheets using Intelliwebsearch and similar tools (by Kevin Lossner) | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

Some years ago I suggested a procedure using Google spreadsheets for glossary collaboration in projects. Many people do this sort of thing now. What I do not think most are doing, however, is accessing these web-based term lists efficiently as terminology resources in their work. It's hard to compete with the efficiency of integrated termbases, TMs, web search features, etc. ... unless of course you integrate a web search for those online spreadsheets which returns just the few data of interest.

Stanislav Okhvat's insight:
Kevin Lossner describes how to search in online glossaries based on Google Spreadsheets by using Intelliwebsearch, web research solutions integrated in CAT tools (e.g., memoQ Web Search) or other tools.

Better ways to search the Internet while translating with IntelliWebSearch (by Kevin Lossner)

Better ways to search the Internet while translating with IntelliWebSearch (by Kevin Lossner) | Translator Tools | Scoop.it
IntelliWebSearch today isn't nearly as difficult to figure out as it seemed years ago. It's a very useful tool and a good extension of my working environment which I can recommend with more confidence. Later this summer colleague Michael Farrell, the Italian to English translator who created IntelliWebSearch for all of us, is giving two webinars sponsored by IAPTI, which offer a thorough grounding in the basics of this productivity booster.
Stanislav Okhvat's insight:
Kevin Lossner shares his thoughts on using terminology research tools (memoQ's integrated web search module and IntelliWebSearch) and invites fellow translators to take part in a webinar on IntelliWebSearch to be held by Michael Farrell, the tool's developer.

IntelliWebSearch – a quick guide (by Mats Linder)

IntelliWebSearch – a quick guide (by Mats Linder) | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

Michael Farrel’s IntelliWebSearch (IWS) is an extremely popular program for looking up terms in a large number of terminology (and other) resources, also from within Studio and other CAT tools. It’s quite easy to use, but the help pages (on the net) may be slightly off-putting. Therefore, I have written this quick guide, which will help you use the basic functions (which as usual is what you will use most of the time)...

How to create a Custom Search Engine to research preferred websites and integrate it with IntelliWebSearch (video) (by Dominique Pivard)

How to create a Custom Search Engine to research preferred websites and integrate it with IntelliWebSearch (video) (by Dominique Pivard) | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

Google’s Custom Search Engine can be a convenient way to restrict searches to several specified domains, like the site:domain.com setting in Google’s Advanced Search for a single site/domain.

 

This video shows how to create a custom search engine for Finnish newspapers that includes the websites of five newspapers, as well as another custom search engine for Wikipedia in three different languages.

Stanislav Okhvat's insight:

In this video, Dominique Pivard (aka CATguru) demonstrates how easy it is to search a number of preferred websites for words or phrases. This can be particularly useful in a number of situations: 1) to find how a specific word or phrase is used in context, 2) to research terminology on a website that does not integrate a search section, 3) to search several websites simultaneously.
