English translation:may cause cholinesterase inhibition.
Explanation:
WHAT IS CHOLINESTERASE?
Cholinesterase (ko-li-nes-ter-ace) is one of many important enzymes needed for the proper functioning of the nervous systems of humans, other vertebrates, and insects. Certain chemical classes of pesticides, such as organophosphates (OPs) and carbamates (CMs) work against undesirable bugs by interfering with, or 'inhibiting' cholinesterase. While the effects of cholinesterase inhibiting products are intended for insect pests, these chemicals can also be poisonous, or toxic, to humans in some situations.
Human exposure to cholinesterase inhibiting chemicals can result from inhalation, ingestion, or eye or skin contact during the manufacture, mixing, or applications of these pesticides.

Thank you very much. I may have more Afrikaans translations to check or do. I am looking for someone to work with me, and include my e-mail: idybwad@hotmail.com
I am in the US, but was born in South Africa, Pretoria.
Please could you also let me know how you found out the terminology, as I would like to buy the medical dictionary, or other source if possible.

I look forward to hearing from you.
