Let me introduce you 2lingual. You can get search results in the language pair you select. Very helpful for terminology researches.

    • Needs a bit of work but pretty good. Seems to have an issue with homophones (it translated assault and battery as saldırı ve pil) and it also couldn't find the Turkish equivalent for ''battlements'' despite somehow finding the equivalent for machicolations.

      • Yeah, it needs some improvements but I like the idea of searching a term in two languages simultaneously. Saves time and has great potential.

            • Taking pride in delivering a high-quality service

            It would be a bonus, but not a must, if you have one or more of the following criteria:
