Hello,

I'm currently working on the translation of some manuals for medical equipment. Much of the text is relatively simple (I have experience in this field) and I'm working at good speed.

However, part of this project is highly technical and has a lot of very specific technical terms, all with regard to CT scanning and X-ray techniques and the underlying theory. I do succeed in finding most of them eventually, but the searching and Googling is taking me a lot of time, and I'm not always 100% certain of what I find.

Does anyone happen to have a glossary for this field or know of a (preferably Dutch) website where these terms and techniques are explained and listed? I'm translating from English into Dutch.

Any help is very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
Margreet

Extensive sources may be found at Philips and Siemens Dec 8, 2007

Having been trained at both Philips (in Eindhoven, Holland) and Siemens (in Erlangen, Deutshland) back in the seventies, I know that they both had extensive literature on all their products (including Medical Equipment, CT scanners and X-Ray machines) in many languages in addition to their national languages (the native languages of the companies). You can go to their websites and choose the languages that you seek and hopefully pick up all or most of the terms that you are seeking. Otherwise you can alternatively search for the terms that you seek along with entering the name/s of these companies and come up with articles etc in both German and Dutch. To exclude irrelevant articles/pages (such as single language articles), make sure that you type one of the two company names when searching from a general search engine.

This is Siemens Dutch site:
http://www.siemens.nl/medical_solutions//default.asp

This is Siemens German site:
http://www.medical.siemens.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StoreCatalogDisplay~q_catalogId~e_-3~a_langId~e_-3~a_storeId~e_10001.htm

The following is the English Siemens search page:
http://w1.siemens.com/apps/search/en/index.php

You can change it to German. On the link before the latter you can change languages (to choose Dutch).

There are search boxes on most of the pages of the sites.

There may be no comprehensive glossary that you seek, but searching for individual terms may come up with what you require.

Try the same for Philips.
