toxic fallout


New Member
Hello everyone....

I'm trying to translate a document in French and have come across the expression "toxic fallout"

"More than a million Britons will be out of work and on the dole by next month as the toxic fallout from Black October filters down to ordinary families...."

How could I translate "toxic fallout" into French?

Thanks for any suggestions :)

    Hi Dangermouse,

    There could be a change of imagery here for the French translation.
    You could say something like:

    "le triste résultat" or "les conséquences dévastatrices"

    Hope this helps
