English translation:synoptic ledger / journal
Explanation:
This term seems to be more common in the according context (Google).

See:

PROCEDURE
4. The responsible officer shall maintain detailed records of moneys
received and of the costs of education of dependants. These records shall
be maintained in a synoptic ledger with sufficient columns to permit all
accounts to be maintained in one book of original and permanent entry. The
recording of all bookkeeping entries in one book will facilitate the
maintenance of records and the preparation of financial statements.
5. The synoptic ledger shall be maintained in accordance with the Ontario
Ministry of Education manual "Uniform Code of Accounts". Differences
between the calculated grant and the grant received should be followed up
and appropriate corrective action taken.

MARCHE A SUIVRE
4. L'officier responsable doit tenir un registre détaillé des sommes
reçues et des frais que comportent l'éducation des personnes à charge. Ce
registre doit consister en un journal synoptique comportant un nombre
suffisant de colonnes pour permettre d'y inscrire une fois pour toute tous
les comptes. Toutes les inscriptions comptables étant ainsi faites dans un
seul livre, la tenue des relevés et l'établissement des états financiers
s'en trouveront facilités.
5. Le journal synoptique doit être tenu à jour en conformité du manuel
"Uniform Code of Accounts", du ministère de l'Éducation de l'Ontario. Il
faut se tenir au courant des différences entre la subvention demandée et
celle qui est reçue, et prendre les mesures correctives qui s'imposent.

One: Bookkeeping

Bookkeeping can be defined simply as keeping daily records of business financial transactions. These records include a daily cash sheet, accounts receivable and accounts payable ledgers, and a synoptic (combined) ledger. "Synoptic" is derived from the Greek word meaning to "see everything at once". A synoptic ledger is sometimes referred to as a combined journal, a combined ledger, or a general ledger. Each of these ledgers will be discussed in some detail later in this chapter.

Though few people actually look forward to posting entries in the various ledgers, if your day-to-day bookkeeping is put off or ignored, it could become unmanaged, ledgerable and inaccurate. If you don't have the time, the inclination, or the aptitude to do it yourself, discuss the problem with your accountant and find an affordable and satisfactory solution.

Single Entry Bookkeeping - a single entry system means every dollar transaction is recorded only once, either as income or expense, an asset or a liability. All entries are recorded on a one page synoptic journal or also called a revenue and expense journal. The system is simple, easily understood, and thus requires little training. This is the system we will be describing in the example that follows.

Comptabilité en partie simple - Avec un système de comptabilité en partie simple, les opérations sont inscrites une seule fois, soit comme revenu ou dépense, soit comme actif ou passif. Toutes les inscriptions se font dans un journal synoptique d'une page ou journal des revenus et dépenses. Le système est simple, facile à comprendre et exige une formation assez brève. C'est le système que nous décrivons dans l'exemple ci-dessous.

Thanks. I seemed to recall "synoptic", but I couldn't document it in any of my French-English accounting and business dictionaries.
