Have found out that my present translation job has a good few more medical terms than I realised.
Can anyone suggest a reasonable online dictionary?

Any help gratefully received.

Not G>E, but I am using this source (the Atlas) all the time, just to familiarize myself with the location of all those organs! The site has a nice glossary, too.

The English equivalent would be Dorland's Medical Encyclopedia:

Good luck,
