To improve the quality of results, jbovlaste search does not return words with insufficient votes. To qualify to be returned in search results, a proposed lujvo is required to have received a vote in favor in both directions: for instance, in English to Lojban and in Lojban to English.

In addition, due to it being a very technically hard problem, full text searching (that is, searching of definitions rather than just keywords) is not available at this time.

From Lojban to English :

        Word: jviso [jbovlaste]
        Type: experimental gismu (YOU RISK BEING MISUNDERSTOOD IF YOU USE THIS WORD)
  Gloss Word: ISO in the sense of "brivla"
  Gloss Word: ISO code
  Definition: x1 is the ISO designation/result/standard/code for topic x2
       applied to specific case/individual/group/thing x3 according to
       rule/ISO specification x4 published by/according to mandating
       organization x5 (default: ISO)
       Notes: Theoretically, the standard organization/body could be other
       than ISO, but it should be prominent and/or international (and
       internationally recognized) in scope and nature; in such a
       case, replace each occurrence of "ISO" in the definition with
       the appropriate name/designation/title (of the organization,
       etc.). x1 need not be a name-designation/code (it could be the
       result of any rule), although it likely will commonly be so.
       Examples of possible x2-filling sumti: code-designations for
       language, country, currency, script, etc.. For an entity with a
       given code, use terjviso or terseljviso (specifying the
       type of entity being designated by use of the appropriate
       terbri j2); for a given ISO rule, consider veljviso; for the
       organization ISO, consider xeljviso. See also: linga,
       landa, rucni, cilfu, jvinjiata/jvisiata,
       jvinjica'o/jvisica'o, jvisuai, jvisiupaco, jvisrcei,
       jvisrbipmo. This word is the gismu version of:
       javniso/jvaiso.
