Hi egary,

This reference article explains the new wildcard search feature. Basically, in the dictionary search box (at the top of this page, with the TRANSLATE button), just put a * where you want to allow any characters. For instance:

"*ing" returns:

  • morning
  • bring
  • going
  • amaznig
  • anything
  • camping
  • parking
  • smoking
  • jogging
  • footing

It's not working perfectly at the moment, but that should be fixed soon enough....

It seems to work great if I put in three letters, e.g., "hab*" but not if I put more, e.g. "habl" - --Mariana--, AGO 25, 2009
