We are translating the English "hydrocholoride" as "chlorhydrate" in French. Can anyone confirm that this is the correct translation for this chemical? If not, can you provide the correct translation.

Thanks!

Most probably it's the same. But what term they are using in French?

Dear Fred,
the translation is correct. I'm a chemist and I know both English and French (only for your info).

Hydrochloride of what? Oct 19, 2011

Hydrochloride of what?
Something is missing.

(OK, I see a chemist replied, so never mind... But isn't there's a component missing before we can talk about "this chemical"?)

Dear Joakim,
it doesn't matter of what. The name in general is translated in French as chlorydrate.

chlorhydrate de Oct 20, 2011

The preposition "de" is necessary after chlorhydrate: English "X Hydrochloride" becomes "chlorhydrate de X" in french
