Language Translations

KMK offers accurate, up-to-date translated safety data sheets for the country of destination, in 45+ languages.

KMK Regulatory Services utilizes industry standard health and safety phrases in the creation of all regulated documents and reports. Quality translations are essential when you are considering expansion into International markets. Our International translations partner is ISO 9001:2008, EN 15038:2006, and ISO 13485:2003 certified. All sentences, in all 45+ languages–have been rigorously tested to ensure accuracy–after they have been translated locally, by experts in the EH&S domain. We recommend that our clients utilize our standard sentence library of more than 6,000 sentences per language. However, we understand that in certain cases, company-specific sentences must be used and in these cases, we offer the flexibility to provide whatever you may need. Here is a table of language translations that KMK can support, by country and related to appropriate chemical regulations.
