I just understood what DOI means:

WHen in Annual reports they list the geographical regions, they often have the category OTHER.

I know it means all others...not France, not Europe, not Asia Pacific...

North America
Latin America [I can\'t tell whether your thing is Latin America only, or North America as a separate category]
Europe
Asia Pacific
Other

I know it\'s other as in other international but don\'t know exactly what the French is...
