Danish term or phrase: fasttekster
Dette indbefatter konvertering af tabeller, fasttekster, triggere og listbilleder fra dansk til engelsk grund.

Have Googled "fast text" etc, but I don't think it means that. From what I've found it seems to be when each letter or string of letters is allocated a unique number.... not sure though.

Thanks for any help.

fixed text / static text / default text
Explanation:
Fixed text (static text) refers to default text in a program. Here is an example of how the Danish term is used:

"Datoen kan tilføjes som fast tekst (datoen forbliver. den samme) eller som variabel tekst, som automatis opdateres med den aktuelle dato, når etiketten udskrives"
http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:fPQXr71-8CkJ:global.dym...

Note: The proper term in Danish is fast tekst (or faste tekster) - not "fasttekster".

Here's an example in English (from a description of how flash works):

"Static text are used for titles, labels, or other text content that appears in a flash document by default."

"Fixed text" fetches around 750,000 Ghits.
"Static text" fetches 450,000 Ghits.

Of course, in this case, you may want to use the plural: fixed/static/default textS...
