I am writing an eHow article on translating medical terms
from English into Spanish for medical practitioners and am
wondering if anyone could recommend good
dictionaries/glossaries for this purpose, both online and as
hard copy. I'd welcome your suggestions as well as any
additional info you can provide on those resources! Thanks
in advance! (If you don't want your name mentioned in the
article, please state so in your post.)

diccionaries and glossarie Oct 18, 2010

Dear Marion,

There is an excellent journal "Panacea", published by TREMEDICA, you can download it free at their site. It is published in Spanish but also has articles in English. Among the papers there are many glossaries, ENG to SPN. This Journal is specifically dedicated to Medical Translations.

An excellent dictionary is: the "Diccionario crítico de dudas inglés-español de medicina" The author is Dr. Fernando Navarro. Published by McGraw-Hill.

Stedman Bilingue Oct 18, 2010

I have found the Stedman Bilingue Diccionario de Ciencias Medicas (Ingles - Espanol; Espanol - Ingles) to be quite good, although not perfect.

It is fairly comprehensive although it won't always have the term you are looking for.

I would use this along with other good dictionaries when translating the English - Spanish combination.
