    Would my translation of this sentence makes sense?

    "Elles s’autodésignent comme entreprises des « sciences de la vie », mais leur objectif est de breveter à la fois les gènes, les semences et toutes les technologies qui leur sont associées afin de s’assurer rien moins que le contrôle effectif de l’agriculture mondiale."

    They refer to themselves as life science entreprises, but their objective lies in patenting simultaneously the genes, seeds and all the associated technology, in order to ensure nothing less than an effective control of agriculature globally.

    Does "rien moins que" really directly translate into "nothing less than"?
