Tools: Finding online glossaries with wwwsift

Finding online glossaries with wwwsiftSearching for language-specific terminology on the Internet can be a time-consuming and frustrating experience. WWW Search Interfaces for Translators (wwwsift) promises to make this a lot easier.

The site provides an powerful interface to search the Web for glossaries, parallel texts, abbreviations, idioms, and pictures. wwwsift is designed as one big Google and Altavista hack. It's not super easy to use - you have to play around with the interface to understand the various search options. Help is minimal, and the wwwswift Yahoo group isn't much help.

Despite these challenges, wwwswift is a powerful addition to your terminology management toolkit.
