French term or phrase: étiquette fille
Translation of various files on SAP Workflow programming for barcode label printing and I keep coming across this term in the context "imprimer les étiquettes filles", I've scoured the internet and can't find it used anywhere else. Any ideas?

It seems to be a stage in barcode printing, but I can't find a specific English term that would correspond.

child label

Example of FR usage (context: libraries): "Le coffret est doté d'une « étiquette mère », intégrant les informations sur son contenu alors qu'à l'intérieur les CD ont une « étiquette fille » pour vérifier, sans ouvrir la boîte, si l'ensemble est complet et contient les bons éléments."

Example of EN usage (context: laboratories): "In using barcode comparison programs you simply scan the parent label and then scan all of the child labels (patient samples) in your lab to verify the barcode data matches."

agree  philgoddard: Daughter would be OK too, though there's no particular reason to make it female. Or you could say sublabel.
