Explanation:
Aside from the cup seal, wiper seal, and stepped seal, all translations below are mine (and thus a reasonable guess):

U-ring= joint (en) U
Wiper seal=joint racleur (or \"segment racleur if on a piston)
Cup seal=Joint-cuvette
NU-lips=lèvres NU (don\'t know what it is, but some seals or rings do have lips
Quad rings=Bagues quadrangulaires
V-packings=garnitures or joints (en) V
Hat seals=Joints omega
Stepped seals=Joint étagé (in the Goursau Aerospace dic.)
Slide rings=Joints coulissants or glissants

I found on the site Britishmetrics.com (with nice pictures) that \"NU-lip\" was really a \"NU lip seal\"; thus \"joint à lèvre(s) NU\", but I couldn\'t say what NU stands for.
Also don\'t put \"joint oméga\" for \"hat seal\" because the hat seal shown on this site isn\'t at all omega-shaped.
