Hola, Danny. No me retes. Entré un momento a Proz y ví tu pregunta.
Este link (que puedes instalar) es una versión de prueba de pesas y medidas, aunque la equivalencia la saqué de Simon & Schuster.

Explanation:
Chinese tael = 3779.93641666667E-02 gram
ounce = 28.349523125 gram

As for the translation, "tael" remains the samen. "Ounce (Avoir)", just "onza".
By the way, "avoir" is just the firts part of the complete name "avoirdupois".

HTH...
