French term or phrase: Encours
Hello All, can someone please provide the definitive translation - if there is one - of 'encours' as I am never quite sure how to translate it. Here are two sentences: "Les ménages ont encore réduit leurs dépenses, et corrélativement les banques ont diminué leurs encours de prêts," and "Les échéances les plus longues se sont bien comportées, surtout aux Etats-Unis, où le Gouvernement a procédé au rachat d’une partie de l’encours de la dette."

Thanks in advance.

English translation:loans outstanding/outstanding debt
Explanation:
Encours just means "amount outstanding" or "outstanding amounts". But in the context above I would use "loans outstanding" for the first one and "outstanding debt" for the second.

Cheers,

Béa

outstanding loans/outstanding debt


Explanation:
In bank accounting, encours would be loans not yet paid off by consumers: outstanding loans.
In macro (country) accounting, it would be the outstanding debt. What hasn't been paid off.
And of course, in manufacturing, it refers to "in-progress" products; not yet finished. Hope this helps.
