English term or phrase: selective
A word on its own at the top of a list of software messages I have to translate from English into French. Here is the begiinig of this list:

Back
Selective
Solder
Cell
System:
cbosseaux
sélectif, sélective (maybe "soudure sélective"?)
Explanation:
Are you sure the words "selective" and "solder" are separate? It seems strange that the same list should have a series of nouns in it and this adjective thrown in.

" Wave Soldering
SEHO: Wave solder machines and selective solder systems."
http://www.kirbydemarest.com/circuitboard.html

"New Selective Soldering Systems:
- Laser Soldering Systems LSM 3300/3400
- Mini Wave Soldering Systems MWM 3100/3200
New Wave Soldering Systems MWS 8200 "
http://www.seho.de/e/tech/innovations.html

I also found this text about "selective soldering" together with a photo of what may very well be the kind of machine that this software controls. Have a look:
