    I'm looking to translate the phrase "telescoping slides" into Spanish. It has to do with the apparatus that allows you to open and close a drawer.

    I would call them 'guías telescópicas' or 'rieles telescópicos'. Unless it is clear you are talking about a drawer, you have to add 'de cajones' or say 'guías de cajones telescópicas' (it is as in English, I couldn't understand your question until you mentionned the drawers, because the word 'slide' has many meanings).
