    Overall coverage of the third edition was already excellent, and the improvements to be found in this edition only serve to cement the work's well-deserved position on the desk of serious French<>English medical translators around the world.

Preface to the 4th Edition

    With over 5200 new entries, the current edition of the Dictionary of Medicine French–English contains close to 119,000 French medical terms.
    The whole text was revised again, and the mistakes, mostly misplaced words and typographical errors, were corrected. In addition, in order to save space the previous editions had numerous French eponyms with a single name (e.g. Gengou, Jonkers, Moon, etc.) referenced elsewhere (Bordet-Gengou, réaction de, Waardenburg-Jonkers, dystrophie cornéenne de, Laurence-Moon-Berdet-Biedl, syndrome de — respectively), for their English equivalents. All of these eponyms are now provided with their English meanings where they are, so the user of this electronic dictionary will not have to go to a different file to find the meaning of that particular entry.

Preface to the 2nd Edition

    Two of the world's leading languages of medicine are English and French. New medical terminology in both English and French appears every year at an accelerated rate. The need for a current one-volume comprehensive French/English medical dictionary has been felt by many in English and French speaking countries, including medical writers, editors, translators, researchers, physicians, and others. While no one dictionary can cover everything in a field as vast and rapidly-evolving as medicine, the need for a major reference tool that covers most of the field is clear. With this in mind, the present volume—by far the most extensive of its kind—was launched in the first year of the new century. It sold out in less than three years, has been fully revised, and it is now issued in its second edition.
    The largest number of close to108,000 terms covered by this dictionary are in the fields of clinical and laboratory medicine. Other subject areas are: social services (social security and health insurance), biochemistry, biotechnology (genetics, enzymology, cell engineering, and AIDS research), as well as psychiatry and psychology. This dictionary is the result of three decades of meticulous compilation, classification, and elucidation of actual medical documents, rather than theoretical research. It reflects the reality of the medical field in both cultures.
