How to use the terminology database
You can search for the term you are interested in by entering the search word(s) into the entry field on the left side of the start page and click on the field „search“. Below it you will see the list of hits (entries that contain the query). If you click at one of it, in the right part of the screen the entire query will show, with all the data related to the query in question.
You can enter your query in any of the languages that the database contains. (Yet, if you use English or Serbian language, you will increase the chance of finalizing the query, since these two languages are mostly used in the database.)
In your query you can use supplementary symbols:
It is possible to use a combination of wildcards (e.g., query *rights$ will give you the list of hits with terms that end in the word rights, and query %organi?ation$ will give you the terms of the combination of other words with the word organisation/organization).
- _ (underscore), . (dot) and ? (question mark) can replace any character in a specific word (e.g. alternative spelling of a word, for example organisation/organization, i.e. all the entries that contain these, you can search if you enter the query organi_ation or organi.ation or organi?ation).
- % (percent) and * (asteriks) can replace any number of characters (e.g., if you want to search for all the supplementary words that can be found between words charter and rights, you can enter charter%rights or charter*rights and in the hit list you will get all the existing combinations in the database; likewise, with entry %rights or *rights you will get all the combinations of words that can be found combined with the word rights.
- $ (dollar) marks the end of the word (e.g., you can use it for searching the term commission only, and you will get only this word in the hit list, without its combination with other words).
By simple query, without wildcards, you will get the list of hits that will have your query listed in any number of combinations and in any position in that combination.
