Flexible matching/Exact matching

We introduce the choice between "Flexible matching" and "Exact matching".
With "Flexible matching" you search the word stem. For example, searching for "translation" will search for "translat" and find translate, translates, translated and translation.
With "Exact matching" you search for the exact term, spelling and word ending. However, you can add a so-called wildcard (*/?) for variations in spelling, as in woman/women or for searching the word with different endings, so-called truncation.
"Flexible matching" is set as default.


Type ahead suggestions

In future, the search box will show suggestions for words as you start typing. The sugestions come from metadata in DTU Findit. This could help you find relevant keywords and the correct spelling og words.

When you search DTU Findit, a search will also be performed in wikipedia.org. If a Wikipedia article is available, it will appear in the DTU Findit's search result.
The Wikipedia entry can be used to introduce a topic such as the Periodic Table (below), or a simple explanation of a term.
