French term or phrase: en transparence
"La carte est bicolore: une partie blanche et un aplat orange avec le picto en transparence." I'm not sure how to translate "en transparence." Also, is "a solid orange section" okay for "un aplat orange." Thanks! Karen

Explanation:
For aplat (also: à plat) in Termium I found "tint block" under printing processes. My guess is that the graphic is visible through the block of orange color.

orange flat tint / "appearing through the card"


Explanation:
Aplat (cf. www.granddictionnaire.com) :

flat tint = teinte plate (Terme(s) apparenté(s)= aplat n. m.)
Déf. :
Teinte passée sur un dessin sans effet d'ombre ou de dégradé, c'est-à-dire teinte dont la densité est régulière.
Teinte d'un aplat, c'est-à-dire d'une surface uniformément couverte d'une couleur ou d'une teinte continue.
Note :
On dit aussi « lavis » s'il s'agit de couleur à l'eau. S'oppose à « teinte dégradée » ((...)).
En cartographie, on dit parfois « un aplat » pour teinte plate. Ex. : un aplat de jaune

en transparence

I am not sure about the right expression. Maybe "in transparency" would be enough. You can also write ...with the pictogram appearing through the card".

I hope that helps !

Your "aplat orange" looks like an "orange background" to me (from the context)

"solid orange" sounds okay (orange w/ no other colour) or


Explanation:
"flat orange" (as against 3-dimensional orange or volumetric orange). As for "en transparence", are you sure this is not a pictograph ON TRANSPARENCY? (the medium).
Pardon if I'm not too sure myself, but the previous answers have me floored.
