French term or phrase: déflatant
This can't mean "deflating" or can it? Bank pension scheme calculation: "le montant de ce salarie a été approché en déflatant dans le rapport d'évolution du plafonsd Securité Sociale la contre-valeur des points bancaires...."
Mathematical term no doubt. Anyone know the English equivalent?

English translation:by reducing ... the counter-value of the (whatever you decided to call the 'points bancaires'!)
Explanation:
Oh yes it can! Or almost ...I agree that it sounds very un-French though.

My Collins & Robert, gives an example with the noun "déflation" :

(écon / fin) : deflation
(effectifs) : reduction, cut (de : in)
(- salariale) : declining wage trend

Whilst not trace of a verb, the sense just HAS to be the same. Sounds like an anglicisme though.
