Terminology

Suggested Resources for Medical Terminology:


Cross Cultural Health Care Program Medical Glossaries:
We developed our medical glossaries because of the difficulty interpreters and translators reported in finding dictionaries covering medical terms in many languages. These glossaries contain a word list of 1,000 to 2,600. The Expanded glossaries contain the term in English, the translation, and the definition of the term in English.
