Bus/Financial - Manufacturing / Balance sheet
|French term or phrase: Encours de production de biens et de service|
|This entry appears on a balance sheet. Thannks in advance for all suggestions.|
|English translation:Encours - outstanding|
I regularly translate for a well-known French finance group, and they always ask for this term to be translated as 'outstanding', especially in their balance sheets, e.g. 'production outstanding', 'credit outstanding', etc. I don't know if this is just an idiosyncrasy of theirs as I'm not a specialist, but thought it could maybe be useful...

"encours de production" is work in progress; I have never come across "service in progress" in English (the concept doesn't actually make much sense), so I would just omit it here
