Last week, the EDQM launched a new version of its Standard Terms database. It used to cost €70 to access it, but now it's free of charge.
This is great news for new medical translators and others who have been translating EU product information (Summary of Product Characteristics, etc.) without using this resource.

Users of the old Standard Terms need to request a new password too.

I've just written a blog post about the whole process - which is surprisingly complex - with some screenshots of the new database:

Great news! Dec 1, 2014

Dear Emma,
thanks for sharing. This is great news!

Would you also know if there is a way of accessing MedDRA terms other than by applying for a fee-based subscription? Even joining a group subscription with shared costs would be great.

Thanks so much in advance for any information!

With warm regards, Eveline
