Biomedical Concept Recognition in French Text Using Automatic Translation of English Terms

We addressed the task to automatically recognize and normalize entities in a French medical corpus. To increase the coverage of our initial French terminology, English terms were translated into French by two different automatic translators. Indexing with a terminology that contained the intersection of the translated terms in combination with several post-processing steps to reduce the number of false-positive detections, gave the best performance results.
