Hello ProZnians,



I have been given a Dutch description of

Ophthalmologist/Optometrist training of which my client needs a translation for

certification in the States. Like a very broadly specified syllabus. The good part is that, for once, I can take my time!

Otherwise I would have had to turn it down as it is a bad copy of a fax resent via

eFax, so cannot scan it to save time. This translation is more technical than

medical and contains an awful lot of jargon. Even if you get this message later, please feel free to answer as this translation will be spread out over several weeks. I might run into something that you may be able to

shed some light on.



Quick Google searching provided me with equivalent colleges, but, of course,

no Dutch-English terminology. I am hoping that at least one of you has translated this type of material in the past, and could be so

kind to provide me with the names of reference materials, i.e. Optometrist

dictionaries and bookstores where I may find these, websites, anything where I can get the terminology with respect to the instruments and expressions used in the Optometrist industry.



Looking forward to your reactions,



Marijke

Hallo Marijke,



Deze site heeft een Optometry Dictionary. Ik heb echter nu geen tijd om te checken of die al dan niet online te raadplegen is. Ik hoop het voor jou in ieder geval.



Succes



Ann

And a few more May 13, 2002

Here are two more sites that could prove to be useful:



The Adam Health Illustrated Encyclopedia at



www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/encyclopedia.html

Created by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, this site has more than 4,000 articles about diseases, tests, symptoms, and injuries, along with drug information, links to medical dictionaries, online physician directories, and lots of other resources.



MedTerms.com at



www.medterms.com/script/main/AlphaIdx.asp?p=A_DICT



Just type in a keyword at this site and you\'ll get tons of information about medical conditions, treatment, medications, plus doctors\' answers to questions sent in by site visitors.
