Japanese translation:If you're "translating" this into American English, then it would be french fries.
Explanation:
I'm pretty sure that in the UK, potato chips are referred to as "crisps."

Not sure if you needed this too, but since you've posted this in the E-J section, in Japanese, potato chips are "poteto chippusu/ポテトチップス" and fries are "furaido poteto/フライドポテト".
