We propose a translation of a pi-calculus without sums nor replication/recursion into an untyped and essentially promotion-free version of differential interaction nets. We define a transition system of labeled processes and a transition system of labeled differential interaction nets. We prove that our translation from processes to nets is a bisimulation between these two transition systems. This shows that differential interaction nets are sufficiently expressive for representing concurrency and mobility, as formalized by the pi-calculus.
