How to Use the Parallel Text Search
Interface Using Google
Choose a language and enter your term using double
quotation marks (" ") for phrases;
Select a search technique and click on Search
(technique no. 1 is generally the most effective);
To refine your search later on you may add a
related term, replacing keyword as follows:
[without quotation marks]
[=> finds texts containing the term "backbone" relating to the
internet (trying to avoid medical texts)]
To increase results, break down phrases: instead of
"internet backbone", search for the two words not necessarily as a
phrase by omitting the quotation marks.
NOTE: Google does not accept the wildcard (*).
Google is NOT case sensitive.
