    Is it appropriate to use "Founder"? Or worker, is there a better translation?

    A founder is a worker in a foundry. The word ouvrier, in general, describes a worker.

    I think fondeur would be better translated as foundry worker, bronze (iron, or whatever) caster, or foundry artist. Foundryman is sometimes used, but isn't gender inclusive. Founder is correct but confusing.
