Useful links

I have brought together here particularly useful biomedical websites. Some of these resources are hosted by businesses. Unless otherwise indicated, I do not have any professional relationships with these companies and they are uniquely responsible for their website content (by clicking on the following links you will be leaving my website). However I would like to thank these companies for graciously providing these information resources.

Find a translator

My translation services are specialized in biomedical sciences and I translate only from French and into English.

If you need a translation into French, in a field other than the biomedical sciences or in a language combination other than French-English, I suggest consulting the following websites. They all have directories of freelance translators.

How should a translator be chosen? See "Choose your translator carefully" under "Five suggestions for successfully managing your translations".

Monolingual biomedical and medical dictionaries

In English

Currently, the paper edition of Dorland's Medical Dictionary must be purchased to have access to its content on the web.

In French

With the classical editors absent, the choice of French medical dictionaries on the web remains limited.

Also, le Grand dictionnaire terminologique and TermSciences can be quite useful for finding French definitions. They are listed here under the heading French-English bilingual dictionaries.

Monolingual non-specialized dictionaries

Yes, they can be quite helpful as well...

French-English bilingual dictionaries

Keep in mind that any dictionary is only a starting point in the search for terminological equivalence; in-context equivalence and the ubiquity of the term must also be established.

Truly authoritative physician-level medical websites in French are few, but I hope to see an evolution in the years to come.
