French term or phrase:Livre III Livre IV
What do the "Livres" mean in the following extract from a financial document:
"2eme reunion de la procedure d'information et de consultation du CCE sur le projet de restructuration des activites de Wartsila NSD France (Livre IV) et sur le projet de licenciement economique et de plan social (Livre III)"
Explanation: I would definitely go with "Book III" and "Book IV" in this context. Clearly the reference is to the book of minutes of meetings. The term "journal" is best reserved for reference to the general journal or any of the journals of specific accounts (such as treasury or cash), which are notebooks, with pages prenumbered consecutively and established columnal formats, in which accounting activity is recorded "jour par jour" (whence the term "journal").
There is a livre-journal used in commerce, but that is formatted in this same fashion for accounting use and is different from the "livre" used to record minutes of meetings.
