Spanish translation:lower level of picking =nivel mas bajo de recoleccion; keyline=esbozo, bosquejo
Explanation:
Silvia, realmente no se si esan son las definiciones tecnicas, pero encontre las siguientes definiciones en el glosario:

picking=the effect of ink being too tacky and lifting fibres out of the paper. Shows up as small white dots on areas of solid colour.

keyline=an outline drawn or set on artwork showing the size and position of an illustration or halftone.

Espero que te ayude de algo. Suerte!

Gracias María por tu explicación. Para tu información, decidí usar para "picking"=menor nivel de adhesion de la tinta que deja puntos blancos en la impresión. Como verás hay que explicar un tanto para que se entienda. Pero con tu ayuda eso fue posible. En el caso de Keyline: decidí traducirlo como "bosquejo principal", porque es justamente lo que ofrece esta empresa a sus clientes en el tema de impresión. Muchas gracias. Silvia

you are talking of two different words. see below


Explanation:
picking: "arrancamiento" or "repelado", refers to particles that separate from the surface of paper, as a result of tensile forces along the surface while being manufactured. Keyline is sometimes defined as "estructura"in some DeskTop publishing software, which seems to be applicable to the definition of keyline shown in your question
