Explanation:
RT stands for Retention Time, this is the time a chemical component of a mixture takes to go through a chromatography column (either liquid or gaz chromatography (LC & GC) ). It is normally different for each component, which allows the column to separate the various components.

So you don't need to translate it, it's already English.
Auf deutsch heißt es Retentionszeit.
