Hello,

Materials Safety Data Sheets use a standard set of Risk Phrases and Safety Phrases numbered R1, R2, ... and S1, S2, ... . Standard translations of these phrases are available into the languages of the European Union, and can be downloaded online.

Does anyone know if a similar set of standard translations can be found for Chinese?

Very grateful for any advice.

Robin

R & S Phrases Jan 10, 2009

Hi Robin,

I know what you mean as I often translate MSDS sheets and phrases from English into Chinese. In the past several years, I always tried to find a set of standard translations of these Risk Phrases and Safety Phrases, but was not successful. Therefore, I have to translate these phrases by myself. If such a set of standard translations exists, it would usually be included in one of the Chinese national standards (GB). However, to the best of my knowledge, none of the Chinese national standards includes such a set of standard translations so far.

That’s great! Jan 11, 2009

Please keep in mind that the text is in so-called traditional Chinese characters, which are for Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao, not for mainland China.
