The goal is that SNOMED CT should become the accepted international terminological resource for health care. It must therefore be capable of supporting multilingual terminological renderings of common concepts. For the terminology to be acceptable to the widest possible range of users it must include translations as well as alternative spellings and other variations that arise from a national or regional dialect. Furthermore, it must be capable of representing differences between underlying concepts that arise from cultural, ethnic or linguistic variations.
