English term or phrase: Medicines Glossary
Hi all!

Where could I find a good/decent glossary/dictionary for names of medicines English to Spanish or vice-versa in the internet?

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Explanation:
1. ENGLISH

"Online Medical & Science Dictionaries
(Other resources)

Search across millions of documents within Electric Library!

Scroll down the page or follow the links to a range of online science and medical dictionaries and glossaries.

2. SPANISH/MULTILINGUAL

http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:allserv.rug.ac.be/~rvds...
"Multilingual Glossary of technical and popular medical terms in nine European Languages"

Finally, glossaries are often not very complete or useful, and often it is easier to guess a translation (given the similarities in terminology) and search to see if it exists;

e.g. idiopathic, interstitial pulmonary fibrosis -

Guesswork produced the following:

"Dolor lumbar idiopatico D. Síndromes dolorosos ... Abreviaciones. I: intersticial ... MB: membrana ... que puedan sugerir fibrosis pulmonar...."
