I have problems to define the web search function of Xbench ... Jun 4

for the web site DeepL.

This is the web page that Xbench should point to : https://www.deepl.com/translator

When I search a 2-word term on that web from Xbench , like sight slot , Xbench looks for sight+slot, instead of sight slot, it adds a plus sign, so the resulting translation is distorted

DeepL expects spaces to be written as %20 Jun 5

This is a common problem for any search tool. Spaces are not allowed in URLs, but DeepL expects the search term resp phrase inside of the URL. Thats why certain browsers, search engines, or research tools replace spaces by plus signs.

But the replacement that works with DeepL is '%20', not '+'. So, you need a research tool that offers such a setting if needed by the website in question. I'm not sure of whether Xbench provides this but Omni-Lookup does, anyway.

What I meant is that you mentioned similar problems that I encountered in the past, I established contact with the support, until then I got no response. I looked for information in the forum and nobody can help me. So I do not look for two words on the Web from Xbench.

This is a translation agency, not a search tool. Or did I miss something?
