The biomedical domain offers a wealth of linguistic resources for Natural Language Processing, including terminologies and corpora. While many of these resources are prominently available for English, other languages including French benefit from substantial coverage thanks to the contribution of an active community over the past decades. However, access to terminological resources in languages other than English may not be as straight-forward as access to their English counterparts. Herein, we review the extent of resource coverage for French and give pointers to access French-language resources. We also discuss the sources and methods for making additional material available for French.
