Tech/Engineering - Computers: Software / optical lenses
French term or phrase: multi traceurs
Does this mean "mutiplot" and if so, how would you translate "le logiciel est multi traceurs"? This is from a text about a computerized order-taking system for optical lenses:

Une haute connectivé

Le logiciel:
- transfere l'ensemble des informations saisies aux meuleuses
- est multi traceurs
- utilise le format propiétaire X

multiplot / multitrack
Explanation:
It depends on the context - unfortunately there is not sufficient context.

"multiplot" if it refers to several pencils writing at the same time.

However, "multitrack" or "multi-signal" if "traceur" refers to a signal acquisition channel that tracks the values of a sensor.

Thanks so much for your response. I contacted the client, and it turns out the right answer is "multi-tracer" or "multi-tracing capabilities." This refers to a machine that traces lenses. Karen
