French term or phrase: Please see message in context field
Hello everyone,

Could someone please offer any suggestions for the following please? I'm not
sure what context I can give you as the words I am looking for help with are
in a table of contents listing information on postal delivery performance.
There's really nothing else I can say on it, but I have a feeling they might
just be standard indicators, but I'm sure someone could confirm that and as
to what they are in English. Thank you in advance.

Borne impaire inferieure

Borne impaire superieure

Borne pair inferieure

Borne pair superieure

Descripteur du libellé de la voie (voie is route in this case, referring to
the postal route)

Indicateurs de scindage

Kind Regards,
Antony Addy

I have a feeling you're going to have to invent translations.

Sounds like postal code routing info. How about "lower evens marker", "upper odds marker", etc.? The "pair, impair" might be postal adresses: in Montreal, and I assume in many other places, street adresses on one side of the street are odd while the ones on the other side are even. Postal codes for one side of the street are usually different from the other side.

Descripteur du libellé de la voie
One literal translation is "route description descriptor".
"Route description"?

Indicateurs de scindage
Division markers?

Just confirmed with the project manager, this gives me enough information to give a good enough definition.

Many thanks!
