International Chemical Safety Cards (ICSC) in different languages

To date approximately 1700 Cards are available in English. ICSC are initially prepared and updated in English in biannual meetings and are published on the Web shortly after. Subsequently, national institutions translate the Cards from English into their native languages and these translated Cards are also published on the Web.

Resource list | 04 December 2011

The English collection of ICSC is the original version.

French, Spanish Chinese, Dutch, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Japanese, Polish and Italian collections follow very closely the updates of the English Cards.

Subsets of the Cards - and not full collections - are available in various other languages: Hindi, Korean, Russian, Swahili, Thai, and Urdu.

The ICSC project aims to increase the number of translated versions available and is always seeking the support of additional institutions who could contribute to the translation process.
