SDS Translation

SDS Translation

SDS translation (translation of safety data sheets) is an essential task for many businesses. Workers who handle hazardous chemicals must be familiar with the safety information contained in the safety data sheets of those chemicals. In some cases, the chemical supplier provides the safety data sheet in the local language, in others, the local enterprise is responsible for organising the SDS translation (the translation of the safety data sheet). Safety data sheets provide vitally important information to users; therefore, you should always entrust the translation of your safety data sheets to an experienced translation agency – Transly Translation Agency!

What does the SDS translation process involve?

To order a SDS translation (safety data sheet translation), send us an e-mail with the text that needs to be translated along with the following information:

👉 what languages do you wish to translate the safety data sheet into;

👉 what is the deadline for the translation;

👉 should anything in the translation be adapted to the target country (e.g., the list of relevant legislation)?

We will then send you a quote.

Here are the top 5 reasons to order a SDS translation (safety data sheet translation) from us.


Translation based on current legislation

1. Translation based on current legislation

The primary legislation governing safety data sheets in the European Union is the REACH regulation and the CLP regulation. The REACH regulation is actually considered to be the strictest law on chemical safety in the world. It lays down both the requirements for the compilation of safety data sheets and the mandatory structure and content of safety data sheets. When working with safety data sheets, the linguists of Transly Translation Agency are always guided by the latest versions of applicable legislative texts to ensure your translations comply with all legislative requirements in force.

translation studies

2. Highly educated and experienced linguists

Our translators and editors are familiar with the mandatory structure of the safety data sheets, as well as the linguistic and translation conventions of the field. In addition, our translators have a professional education (most have an MA in translation) and extensive experience in translating safety data sheets. The Guidance on the Compilation of Safety Data Sheets published by the European Chemicals Agency describes the amount of responsibility involved in the compilation of safety data sheets. Thus the responsible thing to do is to entrust the translation of your safety data sheets to professional linguists.

Modern translation software and technical capability

3. Smart translation software and technical capability

In addition to our wonderful translation team, we also make use of modern translation software and technical equipment to ensure that your safety data sheet translations are correct and cohesive in both language and form and always ready by the agreed upon time. The translation memories and term bases created using translation software make cooperation between us faster, smoother and more affordable with almost every subsequent project. Translation software allows us to account for previously translated segments and repetitions, which safety data sheets feature a fair amount of. Thus establishing a permanent partnership with us will save you time and money without compromising the quality of the translation – it will only improve!

ISO-compliant translation process

4. ISO-compliant translation process

In addition, to ensure accurate, reliable translations, all working processes in the Transly Translation Agency comply with the standard ISO 17100:2015. This means, among other things, that we will first establish your exact needs and expectations and provide good advice. Once we have established everything, we will begin the translation process. Here, it is important to note that all our translations are double-checked by at least one editor. Having a second, fresh pair of eyes to go over the translation allows the text to be refined and ensures that the actual content and quality of the work performed is known to more than just one translator. Finally, once the translation is finished, we will listen to your feedback and take note of it for future reference. This way you can be sure that the result will improve over time and you only need to express your terminological preferences once.

Motivated translators and reasonable price

5. Motivated staff and reasonable price

Transly Translation Agency works with passion and a sense of responsibility. It is our goal to always exceed your expectations. We can guarantee this by valuing our employees, supporting their development, and ensuring motivating pay and a pleasant working environment. We are proud that we can do all this while still offering competitive prices. That’s right: thanks to streamlined working processes and smart translation software, you do not have to sell your soul for a soulful translation. Thus, the safety data sheets translated by Transly Translation Agency are characterised by both quality and reasonable price.

    Frequently asked questions about safety data sheet translation

    Which languages does Transly offer safety data sheet translation for?

    We translate safety data sheets into Estonian and several other languages, including English, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Latvian, Lithuanian, German, French, and Spanish. Here are the main languages we translate. If your desired translation language is not included in the list, send us an enquiry anyway and we will do our utmost to find the best solution for your translation needs.


    How long does it take to translate a safety data sheet?

    Translating a safety data sheet may take 3–4 working days. However, additional time is required for editing and checking text formatting. If you have ordered safety data sheet translations from us before, the process will take less time, as we have stored the previously translated segments in a translation memory created specially for you.


    How much does it cost to have a safety data sheet translated?

    The price of having a safety data sheet translated primarily depends on the source and target language, the volume of content (word count) of the document, and the deadline. Safety data sheets normally feature a fair amount of repetitions. Repetitions are repeating segments in the safety data sheet, i.e., identical phrases, recommendations or instructions. We offer a discount on repetitions. When comparing quotes from different translation agencies for the translation of a safety data sheet, pay attention to what the offer includes; for example, is it an edited translation or unedited translation? When it comes to the SDS translation (translation of safety data sheets), it is always wise to choose an edited translation, as it is a text containing vital information. A professionally translated safety data sheet ensures that chemical handlers receive the information required for the safe handling of the product and allows medical workers, firefighters and rescuers to take appropriate actions to resolve hazardous situations. Therefore, you should always choose an edited translation.


    What does the ordering process of a safety data sheet translation involve?

    To order a translation, send us an e-mail with the safety data sheet text that needs to be translated in Word, PDF or another format. Do not forget to include the target language(s) of the translation, the desired deadline and any other information you deem necessary. We will then contact you with an offer, and after you have confirmed that the price is acceptable to you, our translators and editors will begin translating your safety data sheet immediately.

    In addition to the SDS translation (the translation of safety data sheets) and other texts, Transly Translation Agency also offers services such as copywriting or content creation (in Estonian, Russian, English, and Finnish), foreign-language SEO, translation software implementation, interpretation, and all other additional services included in full-service translation.
