    Anyone know where I can find basic chemistry in haitian creole

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place I'm new here.

    So I work in a pool shop in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We have a lot of guys from haiti taking care of pools that have no idea about pools or there chemistry. So dose any one know where I could get the information for them in creole. I tried giving it to them in french but that did not help. They get yelled by the home owners then they call and yell at me, and I have to try explaining it to them all over again. It gets quite the headache some days.
    Thanks for any info or help in advance.

    Have you tried running pool school pages through google translate?
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    This online translator does English to Haitian Creole. Give it a try.

    English to Haitian Creole translation

    I fed the lyrics to one of my favorite songs ( Zouk La Sé Sèl Médikaman ) into the translator and pretty much got gibberish. I assume that the translator is expecting conversational language, rather than technical.

    This sounds expensive, but I think I would try to find a human that can translate English or French "Chemistry" to Haitian Creole... ever mindful that a LOT of the technical words have no equivalent in Creole.
