We recently discovered this tool which could be useful
for translators of medical texts; the
"glossifier" provided by MPIP (Melanoma
Patients' Information Page) helps people to understand
medical articles. You simply type the URL of an article
you wish to "glossify" in the box provided and
the article will appear in your browser with all the
words that are in the MPIP dictionary linked to their
definition (in English).
