Links to Another card

Links to Another Card

A card or subentry (subcard) can contain a link to another card (for example, a synonym or antonym). To create a hyperlink, you should type one of the headings of the card referenced to in the body of your card enclosing it in broken brackets. A word in broken brackets may be placed in any part of the card but in subentry heading; you aren't obliged to put it in the beginning of a line. When it comes to displaying a card, a link isn't marked with any specific sign but displayed in the same colour as subentry heading. When you click it another card with the word's translation opens.

For example, the following card contains a link to the word "binary":

данные, см. также <<binary>>

If you create a link to a card, the heading of which contains an unsorted part, you can refer to any of the respective heading variants. In any case, the unsorted heading part must be suppressed.

How to insert a link to a card from another dictionary

  1. To insert a link to a card from another dictionary, use the [ref] tag. Use the name of the desired dictionary as the tag’s parameter.
  2. The name of the dictionary should be enclosed in quotation marks and preceded by the “dict” suffix.
  3. If the parameter is not specified, the link will point to a card from the same dictionary that contains the card with the link.
  4. The [ref] tag should be closed by [/ref].

The old link designation '<<>>' is also supported in this new version of Lingvo. But these designations should be used only for links within one dictionary.

For example:

[ref dict="Another dictionary (En-Ru)"]some word[/ref]
