    Hello everybody,

    I have a rather urgent question about the precise translation, into French, of "draught-free clean room". In the context, we are talking about some laboratory facilities and equipement. I have an idea of the general meaning / litteral translation of this, but I suspect the French version would be slightly different, the lab vocabulary being generally specific and technical.

    Is there any laboratory guy around who could help me with this ? Is there any specific vocabulary that should be used there in French, or shall I go with "pièce propre sans courants d'air" ?

    Thanks a lot

    I think that "clean room" translates as "salle blanche".

    Thanks Steve,

    after checking on the Internet for "salle blanche", that's probably what I'm looking for, even though it seems pretty sophisticated in my context. I think I'll go with it.

    Have a nice day !
  4. How do you translate "a draught-free spot" (in a room to store wine)though?
    Sans courant d'air?
