French term or phrase: liaison équipotentielle
Context: "vérifiez que la liaison équipotentielle est réalisée."

I have "check that the equipotential bonding line has been implemented" but I would like to check this as I am not an electrical specialist and this is one of 2 technical sentences in an otherwise non-technical translation, which I will also flag up to the client for checking! TIA for any help.

agree  Tony M: Yes, and I would say '...is in place' or'...has been installed/fitted'. Note that strictly speaking 'bonding' is a different part of speech, and what you need here would be '...bond'; but it would be better to use bonding and re-phrase around it.

agree  B D Finch: What about "Check that equipotential bonding has been done"?
