Abstract [en]

We describe a method for the identification of medical term variation using parallel corpora and measures of distributional similarity. Our approach is based on automatic word alignment and standard phrase extraction techniques commonly used in statistical machine translation. Combined with pattern-based filters we obtain encouraging results compared to related approaches using similar data-driven techniques.
