The PERTOMed project
Exploiting and validating terminological resources of comparable Russian-French-English corpora within pharmacovigilance
The PERTOMed project is a pluri-disciplinary research initiative undertaken by several institutions in France. Applications considered within the part of the project described in this article concern pharmacovigilance and adverse drug reactions. We had multiple objectives: to create a specialized Russian Internet corpus; to test new tools and methods for term extraction from comparable multilingual texts and to build terminological resources including Russian. A trilingual Russian-French-English lexicon resulting form this work is freely available from the PERTOMed server.
