Could this be some kind of filling operation, do you think?

Thanks again

neutral  Kim Metzger: Not sure about the correct translation, but "filling-up" isn't the English technical term; I suppose you mean "filling."

(interior & exterior)stucco finish

from the context, it's not just filling up joints (as Spachteln suggests) but complete concrete coating; as you will see from search results, stucco is preferred over plaster

My Wörterbuch Bau - Cornelsen gives screeding for Spachtelung.

Definition: In masonry terminology, a screed is a straight board used to even off the surface of sand or freshly poured concrete. The screed is usually slid across the tops of the form boards holding the sand or concrete. In this process, sand or concrete remaining above the level of the forms is moved to areas in which the sand or concrete level is too low, or else simply removed as excess.
