Select a language

The taxonomic lists are accessible in several languages and options. The official language of Terminologia Anatomica is Latin and the available languages are currently English, French, Spanish or Russian. On this page you select a language. The Latin selection has English as subsidiary language and all other selections have Latin as subsidiary language.

The TA taxonomy is a subset of the Foundational Model of Anatomy (FMA), limited to ther FMA part corresponding to the coverage of the domain of anatomy adopted by TA, and extended where anatomical entities are missing in the FMA. In general, the FMA model is left unchanged, except a few necessary corrections.

The FMA being only available in English, it has been translated in the other above mentioned languages.

The different languages are obtained by automatic translation of the universal terms, unless any variation is desirable for a specified language. Universal terms are marked with the copyrights sign. All translations have been validated by experts in anatomy, native speakers of that language.

The selection on this page conditions the navigation to follow regarding the languages in use, unless an explicit move is required by the user.
