plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
Risk and safety statements in various languages (MSDS)
December 11, 2008
I have a big problem: The Material Safety Data Sheets of various plating additives I get from our valued suppliers contain R/S phrases in English. But our staff is quite international (R&D;, many students & professors from around the world) and so I need to translate the phrases from English to other languages. A tedious task. Do you know a book or reference, which contains all the translations of the R/S phrases to simplify my work?
Thanks in advance!

Dear Mr. Volderhus,
When I was employed in an electroplating company some time ago and being involved with developing, producing and shipping plating additives, I faced exactly the same problem.
So I created a free online service, where you can translate risk and safety phrases into 22 European languages plus Norwegian:
If you happen to own a Mac, then you can also download this free application named Crisp, which works without being connected to the internet:
Maybe you can also make good use of the tools!
