English to French Chemical Translation Projects and French to English Chemical Translation Projects
We assist organizations with a wide variety chemical documentation related to solid, liquid, and gaseous materials (e.g. products used in manufacture of other items, and those used directly by consumers) that are written in the English or Spanish languages and require accurate translation into French. Solvents, pesticides, lye, washing soda, and portland cement are a few examples of products used by consumers where the labeling and documentation may require translation – all of which are assignments that we can handle.
Other subject areas for which we can source freelance translation resources would include inorganic- and organic-industrial chemicals, ceramic products, petrochemicals, agrochemicals, polymers and rubber (elastomers), oleochemicals (oils, fats, and waxes), explosives, fragrances and flavors). Product examples would include: inorganic industrial (ammonia, nitrogen, sodium hydroxide, sulfuric acid, nitric acid); organic industrial (acrylonitrile, phenol, ethylene oxide, urea); ceramic product (silica brick, frit); petrochemicals (ethylene, propylene, benzene, styrene); agrochemicals (fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides); polymers (polyethylene, Bakelite, polyester); elastomers (polyisoprene, neoprene, polyurethane); oleochemicals (lard, soybean oil, stearic acid); explosives (nitroglycerin, ammonium nitrate, nitrocellulose); fragrances and flavors (benzyl benzoate, coumarin, vanillin).
Of course, in addition to English to French and Spanish to French chemical translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages into French: Chinese to French; Arabic to French; German to French; Japanese to French; Portuguese to French; Russian to French; Korean to French; Italian to French; Hindi to French; and more...
Chemical Language – Cultural Considerations
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the cultural nuances of the target language text, where such may apply.
French to English Chemical Translation Projects and French to Spanish Chemical Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available French to English and French to Spanish chemical language translation resources – including experienced French language translators (native-speaking French if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a French language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having French as a native language may not 'translate into' French language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Spanish and French or English and French language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the French language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to French chemical translation sources of information that we have confidence in.
Bi-Directional French Chemical Translation Service for virtually any language pair

What is the Scope of Chemical Translation?
"The chemical industry comprises the companies that produce industrial chemicals. It is central to modern world economy, converting raw materials (oil, natural gas, air, water, metals, minerals) into more than 70,000 different products.
Every chemical substance has one or more systematic names, usually named according to the IUPAC rules for naming. An alternative system is used by the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS).
Many compounds are also known by their more common, simpler names, many of which predate the systematic name. For example, the long-known sugar glucose is now systematically named 6-(hydroxymethyl)oxane-2,3,4,5-tetrol. Natural products and pharmaceuticals are also given simpler names, for example the mild pain-killer Naproxen is the more common name for the chemical compound (S)-6-methoxy-α-methyl-2-naphthaleneacetic acid.
Chemists frequently refer to chemical compounds using chemical formulae or molecular structure of the compound. There has been a phenomenal growth in the number of chemical compounds being synthesized (or isolated), and then reported in the scientific literature by professional chemists around the world. An enormous number of chemical compounds are possible through the chemical combination of the known chemical elements. At the last count, about thirty million chemical compounds are known. The names of many of these compounds are often nontrivial and hence not very easy to remember or cite accurately. Also it is difficult to keep the track of them in the literature. Several international organizations like IUPAC and CAS have initiated steps to make such tasks easier. CAS provides the abstracting services of the chemical literature, and provides a numerical identifier, known as CAS registry number to each chemical substance that has been reported in the chemical literature (such as chemistry journals and patents). This information is compiled as a database and is popularly known as the Chemical substances index. Other computer-friendly systems that have been developed for substance information, are: SMILES and the International Chemical Identifier or InChI."
Given the wide diversity of producers and products, all of which have their own peculiar technical challenges (from a linguistic standpoint), sourcing competent translation resources is a task ideally suited to a translation agency that is accustomed to identifying the 'right' resource for a given assignment.
