The Americans also use 'fluid assets'.

Hope this helps,

this is the term most often used, often in combination with "fixed assets" (vaste activa". The American term "floating" or "fluid" is not very commonly used in a European balance sheet.See also Van Amerongen "Terminologie Financieel Management". Good luck!
