French MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) vocabulary implementation

As a scientific librarian in a French-speaking university hospital in Switzerland, I would like to have the opportunity for our library users to search also with French medical subject headings.

The NLM (National Library of Medicine) MeSH vocabulary https://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/ is already implemented in Alma but Inserm (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) https://www.inserm.fr/ did its translation http://mesh.inserm.fr/FrenchMesh/ and is available for download here http://mesh.inserm.fr/FrenchMesh/conditions_en.htm

The implementation of French MeSH would be very useful for users to search with controlled terms in their own language and / or for library professionals to set cross-references between French and English controlled terms.

    The Idea was suggested to me by Alexandre Racine of the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) Library. Thanks, Alexandre!
