    Default Translate Drill Mixer in French?

    Hi,

    I am trying to translate the following sentence into french (France):
    "Thoroughly blend with drill mixer prior to each use."
    I already used the verb "mélanger" with "blend", and I dont want to sound to repetitive and say "mélangeur" for "mixer". Also, I have no idea how to translate "drill".

    Thanks for helping out!

    Hi naby! Does this refer to a construction project (rather than food mixing)? Do you know what is being mixed...grout, paint, cement, etc?

    Maybe "perceuse et d'un agitateur"

    mélangez bien avec un mixeur plongeant avant chaque usage

    I have the same questions as Vicente, is this about food or about something else ? (prior to each use) ?

    Hello Frank!!

    That has also been happening to me lately. As if the post is delayed and does not appear until you revisit the page. Some of mine have simply disappeared.

    Hi Frank and vicente,

    Believe me I tried my best to get some more context from the client. Images, files...anything! But nothing. I chose the same translation as the one you provided Frank, but without the "plongeant", which stands for "drill" I suppose. I thought "drill" was for something repetitive isn't it? I'm not sure I understand how "plongeant" could fit here. In any case, thanks a lot for helping out.

    Hi Naby...my guess is that in this case "drill" refers to an electric drill to which a mixing blade/paddle is attached. Used for mixing paint, cement, etc. Similar to a food blender in function.

    I think I got it but just to make sure, do you mean like a "bras éléctrique" to which the blades are attached in french?

    My understanding of French is EXTREMELY limited so I can't say yes or no.

    Here is what I imagine they are talking about...or something similar. The blade is inserted into the drill chuck and the whole thing becomes a "drill mixer", which is a generic term for different styles of drills and blades.

    Mixing blade: https://hydestore.com/hyde-tools-465...p1yhoChUPw_wcB


    I hope I am on the right track and am not confusing you.
