French term or phrase: moitié d'une charge ajout de notion de remise
La redevance d’abonnement et/ou le prix ponctuel particulier sera associée à l’ensemble des services rattachés, et sera portée par l’option. Il arrive cependant qu’il faille présenter deux charges récurrentes sur la facture pour une seule option.
Exemple : Grille de dégressivité ne portant que sur la moitié d’une charge ajout de notion de remise


I must confess that I don't have a clue and that I can't make any sense of it!! Any help much appreciated

charged half (concept of discount)
Explanation:
Sliding scale of charges - grille de dégressivité.

http://www.google.fr/search?hl=fr&q="sliding schedule of"&me...

Example: you sign up for a phone company and are connected part-way through a month. You are only charged part of the full-month line rental fee, for example. Or special offer: you get a discount and are charged less than normal. Pro rata charge+discount.

It's a tough one all right. Think about the way your phone or cable TV bill is laid out.

"E.g.: a Sliding Schedule of Charges detailing 50% of a billing item (plus concept of discount)

Even with the best will in the world, it will come out gobbledegooky, because that's the way it's written. I would go fairly literal with it and not worry too much about it - it's not your job to improve the text.
