Hi everyone,

I'm currently building my resources for translating medical/pharmaceutical texts and was wondering if anyone had any idea where I could find harmonised standard terms (i.e. standard terms across several languages)? So far I have only found the EDQM which seems to provide standard terms on packaging and labelling wording but I was hoping to find somewhere that provides standard terms for medical conditions, adverse reactions etc.

MedDRA preferred terms Oct 9, 2018

Hi Emily,
for AEs, EMA uses MedDRA terms (Medical Dictionary For Regulatory Activities), see: https://spor.ema.europa.eu/rmswi/#/search.
Here you can find most AEs in many EU languages, including French and Italian, and EMA requires that you use the MedDRA terms if available.
Good luck!

How to get access? Dec 5, 2018

Hello Titia and Emily!

Could you please help me. I have created an account in the SPOR website but I can't access any content.

It says "You don't have permission to perform this action" when I try to access to "referentials"

Do you know what should I do? I'm translating content related to Clinical trials from English to Spanish and I really need access to the list of Prefered terms for Adverse events.

Thank you!

Joao
