French term or phrase: en-cours
toute solution de ce type commence par un pré-requis: vidage des en-cours en francs
-une solution dégradée ne pourra pas faire face au problème délicat du traitement des en-cours FRF en fin de période

liabilities
Explanation:
Albert's description was accurate, but in an accounting context, the correct term for 'en-cours' is 'liabilities'.

..."any such solution will starts with an essential action: liquidation of current liabilities in Francs..."

It refers to out-standing debts due, i.e. items or services which have been invoiced, but for which no payment has been received.

Explanation:
currencies/FRF at current rate seems to be the meaning in this context

en cours = ongoing, present

amounts/credits/loans outstanding


Explanation:
To add to Julia's comments above, I think we need a term that's a bit more specific than "liabilities" - one of the above might do if you have the information to choose between them.

For "vidage", rather than "liquidation" of these amounts (which suggests actual settlement), I wonder if it isn't more to do with transferring these items to the new system in euros. If so, "full transfer/conversion" ie to the Euro system might be one way of coping with this.
Good luck

Explanation:
I agree with Julia. It's referring to (current) liabilities, sums outstanding. Here's a source where you can check it out yourself : www.granddictionnaire.com.

The term "encours/en cours/en-cours" can often be trnaslated by work-in-progress too - but then you probably knew that.
