When you translate words or phrases from the search field, ABBYY Lingvo may display:
- A card with the translations of the search word or phrase. This happens when there are cards in the enabled dictionaries for the word(s) you have typed in the search field.
- Two or three cards whose headwords correspond to the search words if reduced to their basic dictionary forms. This happens when you type in words and phrases not in their dictionary forms.
- The Translations dialog box which lists the cards whose headwords correspond to the words or phrases in the search field. This happens if more than three cards have been found.
- The Suggestions dialog box which lists headwords similar to those you typed in the search field. This happens when no exact matches have been found in the enabled dictionaries but there are words very similar in form to your query.
