This paper outlines the main features of Bibliša, a tool that offers various possibilities of enhancing queries submitted to large collections of aligned parallel text residing in bilingual digital library. Bibliša supports keyword queries as an intuitive way of specifying information needs. The keyword queries initiated, in Serbian or English, can be expanded, both semantically, morphologically and in other language, using different supporting monolingual and bilingual resources. Terminological and lexical resources are of various types, such as wordnets, electronic dictionaries, SQL and NoSQL databases, which are distributed in different servers accessed in various ways. The web application has been tested on a collection of texts from 3 journals and 2 projects, comprising 299 documents generated from TMX, stored in a NoSQL database. The tool allows the full-text and metadata search, with extraction of concordance sentence pairs for translation and terminology work support.
