ammonium - piridiniomethyl - piroglutamic
ammoniaak - piridiniometüül - piroglutaam-


Explanation:
"piroglutamic" is an adjective, probably followed by a noun, e.g. "acid"- "hape". In that case it should be translated as a compound word (piroglutaamhape)
(Checked this with a pharmacist)

Explanation:
Ammonium is "ammoonium-", i.e. a prefix in Estonian. "Piridiniomethyl" should be incorrect, the correct form is likely "pyridinomethyl" which should be equivalent to "pyridylmethyl" or "püridüülmetüül-" in Estonian. Pyroglutamic acid is "püroglutaamhape", "piroglutamic" should be incorrect.
