French term or phrase: point de vue
It is from a computer gaming software testing document. The entire section reads as follows:
Sélectionner le projet RCV14_Altimétrie.Lancer le point de vue RCV14_load ALTA.
It is some sort of procedure or function I think - could it be translated as viewpoint? Doesn't seem very correct though.
