French term or phrase: redescente
"La typologie est indexée sur les pages produits (dernier niveau pour l’instant). Intégrée au fur et à mesure de la redescente des fiches de P/E 2007 dans YYYYY."

(where YYYYY is a company in-house interface for building and interlinking company websites).

Can typologies be integrated as cards / files make their way down something, or is this too literal?

I am completely stuck on this one! Any clues much appreciated.

Well, with the reference to "niveau", you're dealing with a verticality metaphor anyway, so might as well be literal, unless you're prepared to rid your text of all up/down notions.

"Remontée" is the common term for sending internal corporate reports, i.e. sending them *upward* in the hierarchy, especially in contexts like accounting consolidation. It gets tricky for the F>E translator when the thing being remonté is "le reporting". :-(
