I have a small translation agency and have accumulated various bilingual glossaries over the past few years (about 1 million records; German<>English, Spanish<>English). Now I want to make them available online on my website as a gadget to attracked more customers. I really like the results output to be similar in appearance to leo.org or dict.cc (they display results in different categories and allow fuzzy matching) We also want to restrict the maximum number of outputs (e.g. to 100; esp. when running a wildcard query) and need to take care of some security issues (crawlers that copy the content of our database, which is proprietory; about 1 million records).
I think at least one of the above two sites uses a weblimpse script (webglimpse.net) to run a fuzzy match query on the search term (the vocabulary) that is entered. Some info is given here (http://www.utils.ex.ac.uk/german/dict/
), but I don't know how to handle this information (too general).
I also don't know how to tackle the results part and the security issues.
Any feedback on this is appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
