TriMED is a multilingual terminological database, which was conceived in order to tackle different problems related to the complexity of medical terminology in three languages: Italian, English and French. In particular, the resource can be accessed by:

  1. Patients, who can look for the equivalent of technical terms in a more familiar and comprehensible terminology;
  2. Translators, who can consult a structured terminological record providing a wide range of information in both source and target language;
  3. Physicians, who, in terms of interoperability, can consult other useful medical resources such as MeSH terms, Snomed CT etc.

The work on the compilation of the records has been running since 2018 and, at the present time, we can give the following number of completed records per language:

  • 436 for English
  • 410 for French
  • 289 for Italian

TriMED has been designed and developed by Federica Vezzani who is currently a PhD student at the Department of Linguistic and Literary Study of the University of Padua under the supervision of Prof. Geneviève Henrot and Prof. Giorgio Maria Di Nunzio.

TriMED has been implemented as a Shiny Web Application by Prof. Giorgio Maria Di Nunzio of the Information Management System Group of the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua.
