Italian translation:alcol isopropilico (isopropyl alcohol)
Explanation:
alcol isopropilico (isopropyl alcohol)

As far I know, the term "isopropal" is incorrect. Surprisingly, I see it´s a very common typo (the pronounciation of "isopropal" and "isopropyl" are similar). The correct term should be isopropyl alcohol = isopropanol = "alcohol isopropilico" or "isopropanolo"

Look this pages, where it appears the incorrect spelling and the correct chemical synonymous isopropanol:
