The identification and mapping of terminology onto a concept hierarchy is the very first stage of semantic, deeper analysis of textual documents. Work regarding automatic terminology recognition using the Swedish MeSH® thesaurus (Medical Subject Headings, edition 2006) and its corresponding English source is reported. A number of transformations and refinements were applied to the original lexical database in order to enhance the automatic process of mapping the extensive variability of lexical terms in authentic data to structured MeSH codes. Means to increase the coverage of both thesauruses for automatic indexing of Swedish medical data are investigated.
