What is the best way to thoroughly search through any website?

What is the best way to thoroughly search through any website?

If I do searches on Google, I only skim the surface. What I need is to be able to first locate websites that might contain the detailed information I'm looking for. And then being able to dig deep into those websites.

I'm working as a translator since more than 2 years, and Google works very well to some extent. But when it comes to technical terminology for medical devices for example, and to translate these from English into Swedish, I need to be able to search through sites containing either only Swedish words or both English and Swedish words for medical devices. If I use Google I will not be able to find the most specialized terminology, for that I need to thoroughly search through medical journals and similar that are published on internet. Or medical databases, forums, etc.

So I wonder if there is any software I could use for searching through websites? Which gives me a lot of flexibility what regards search criteria?

You can use google with site:domain.com
If that's not enough there are offline browsing tools. These basically let you download the site. Then you can use any search tool you want on the local folder.

I'm not clear what you mean with "use google with site:domain.com", could you explain that?

Do you mean that I do a normal Google-search, then, when entered a site, I click CTRL+F to search the site?

If I use the function site:domain.com, will the search be 100 % on all the pages in that site? And if I not use this function but the normal google search, will I only get results from a very limited contents of each website?

If so, I only need to find exactly the right websites and search them thorougly with this function.

It will be 100% of the pages google has indexed.
