In this paper, we will discuss two medical terminology projects at the University College of Ghent, Faculty of translation studies, and the benefits of combining them to provide Dutch professionals and laymen with better access to information in biomedical databases. Our first project, the MeSH Termbase Project (MTB) is aimed at health care professionals, medical translators and also patients in need of language support. The main aim of our second project, the Multilingual Glossary of Technical and Popular Medical Terms, is the simplification of the terminology used in patient information leaflets.
