DIMDI has translated the MeSH over a long period of time, revising it annually and adding new terms. The NLM will no longer provide a translation tool for the MeSH. Therefore, DIMDI will unfortunately no longer be able to offer its translation service from 2020 and will provide the German MeSH in version 2019 for the last time. We are currently trying to find another institution that can take over this task.
The German translation of MeSH 2019 contains the German descriptors as well as their English equivalents. Therefore it is a bilingual version. With the Thesaurus you can, for example, catalog and index media collections or integrate them into your own software.
The current issue is available free of charge as an XML file or database version in CSV format. On the following page you can download the files directly:
