Type in the search window the word/term (or initial part
of word) in English. The search covers a database of
approximately 3200 terms. The results are listed
alphabetically either alone (in case of perfect match)
or in any combination of words or phonetically close
When TITLE search is selected the e-Encyclopaedia
searches through the titles (names) of the articles. The
SEARCH will produce a list with all terms/words, where
the searched word is included. In most cases this quick
search is sufficient.
When FULL TEXT search is selected the e-Encyclopaedia
searches through the full text of all articles and
displays any term where this word is used. This action
uses an advanced search engine and obviously needs more
time to complete the search.
The result of the search is a table of all relevant
terms. To the right of each term is an arrow indicating
the topical area of the term. Selecting the topical area
calls the explanatory article for this term. If one term
is used in several areas (e.g. Absorption as in the
areas of Diagnostic Radiology or Ultrasound), then the
user has to select the appropriate hyperlinked button.
N.B. If the exact spelling of the term is not known, one
can search only according to the initial letters of the
term (e.g. in case of a search for Cathode, typing Cat
in the Search window will present all terms beginning
with these letters, including Cathode).
To translate select your Input Language and the Output
Language. Then just type in the translate window a
term/word (or initial part of word) using the Input
language. The results are listed as a table, arranged as
per the input language. The term in demand is listed
either alone (in case of perfect match) or in any
combination of words or phonetically close words. The
e-Dictionary assumes that the Internet browser already
supports the Input Language and Output Languages.
3. COMBINED (Dictionary plus Encyclopaedia)
This search uses the set up for the Dictionary (i.e.
Input Language and Output Languages have to be
selected). After typing the term/word (or initial part
of word), the search displays a table, arranged as per
the Input language. Against each term is its translation
into the Output language and also the button which calls
the explanatory article for this term in English. As in
the Encyclopaedia, the article of one term can be
explained according to the area of use of the term.
Please note that the Combined use of EMITEL allows only
search through the names of the terms. This Search
assumes that the Internet browser already supports the
Input Language and Output Languages.
