German MeSH: Version 2017 now downloadable at no charge

Feb 3, 2017

As of now, you can download the German translation of 2017 MeSH from our classifications download centre.

Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) is an annually updated medical thesaurus that is published by the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM). Among other things, it uses MeSH for indexing its database records in MEDLINE.

DIMDI publishes the German translation of MeSH. To this end, we revise it on an annual basis and add new terms. This is a bilingual version, as the English equivalents of the German descriptors are also included. The thesaurus enables you to catalogue and index media collections, for example. Or you can integrate it into your own software.

The latest version is available from us free of charge as an XML file or in CSV format. You can download the files directly from our download centre under Classifications, Terminology, Standards at www.dimdi.de.
