French to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Fabric for car trim
French term or phrase: topage
The text is about a type of technical fabric to be used for automobile interior trim. I searched the ProZ glossaries, dictionaries, etc. I think this might mean top of the line, or deluxe or something like that. But I am guessing.

nombreuses solutions de décor (impression, inclusions, nacres, topage, laquages, translucides, coloration en ligne quel que soit le coloris, …)

Notes to answerer
Asker: I asked the customer for more information. Although topping/convertible or roof covering seems relevant - it doesn't seem to be a type of finishing/color/texture which the rest of the list appears to be.

neutral  philgoddard: This does look like a possibility, but you haven't really proved that the English is the equivalent of the French.

Reference information:
I found a definition of topage that could help but it is different from your first mean.
TOPAGE: Action qui consiste à « marquer » des enregistrements utilisés lors d’une campagne ou d’un test afin de ne pas les réutiliser dans le cadre de la même campagne. Le topage peut également à réutiliser les mêmes adresses pour une relance.
