BabelMeSH2 and PICO Linguist2: combined language search for MEDLINE/PubMed

AMIA Annu Symp Proc. 2007 Oct 11;1036.


BabelMeSH2 is a transparent interface for searching MEDLINE/PubMed in one or a combination of nine currently supported languages. The search algorithm automatically detects mix language entries, finds the English equivalent, and retrieves the relevant PubMed citations. We believe this is the first search application that allows mixed language entries.
