English to Spanish translations [PRO]
English term or phrase: L-Carnitine Base / beta-Trimethyl-beta-Hydroxy-Butyrobetaine
"L-Carnitine Base is the principle carniting source from which most others are derived, it is a quaternary ammonium compound (beta-Trimethyl-beta-Hydroxy-Butyrobetaine)..."

Lo que no consigo entender es el significado de "Base". Parecería que es el nombre comercial de un producto que contiene L-Carnitina.
En cuanto a lo que está entre paréntesis, aparentemente sería "beta-trimetil-beta-hidroxibutirobetaína", aunque no estoy seguro, por lo que me gustaría que me lo confirmaran.
Desde ya, muchas gracias.

"Base" se traduce como "base", que en química es el cuerpo capaz de neutralizar un ácido al combinarse con el.
Así pues, yo traduciría "Base de L-Carnitina / y después todo lo demás, que me parece correctamente traducido.
