French term or phrase: comptabilité à double unité de compte
In a text on a microfinance project in DR Congo... The documents in question are similar to handbooks or manuals. I understand from the larger context of the text that this is a specific type of accounting/account-keeping in which values are noted in two currencies (in this case Congolese francs and another, more stable currency) but can't for the life of me find the exact English term.

The sentence is:
"Ces documents prvoient une comptabilit double unit de compte et sont donc adapts la gestion en contexte forte inflation."
