Multilingual Cancer Glossary

A glossary of over 700 cancer terms in nine different languages.

The multilingual glossary has been designed as a resource for professional translators, interpreters and bilingual health professionals working in the cancer field. The glossary is a unique central tool that enables language professionals with access to accurate, consistent and culturally and linguistically appropriate terminology. 

The glossary is available in nine languages and can be downloaded below. 

This project is a Cancer Australia Supporting people with cancer Grant initiative, funded by the Australian Government.
