French term or phrase: volet (computing, data processing)
What would "volet" mean in the computing sense?
Bear.
BearTrans
window pane OR wipe
Explanation:
I am assuming that you are dealing with "volet" in the sense of the first definition, window pane, below, as it is more likely to fit with what I surmise from your other queries. But I am also including the second one, in case your context indicates that it might have to do with switching images on screen (wipe). How much more of this translation do you have, and... will you be returning soon to distribute KudoZ to all the earnest folks who've been helping you out?

Hello Yolanda,
A BIG THANK YOU!
I would like to say a big thank you for all the help with the terminology you have given me for this project, and other translators, NikScot comes to mind with others.
It is VERY much appreciated.
I am a relatively inexperienced translator (who'd have guessed ;)) and I find the Proz service invaluable!
I know sometimes I ask a lot of questions and soon hope to be one of those who helps others out, I haven't felt confident enough to do so yet.
I know it can be a real pain to keep getting the e-mails.
Getting to know how to use google and other search engines (your prompt) has been a real help.
Just wanted to let you know that I think you're a real help to the more inexperienced like me.
Bear.

Explanation:
Hi Bear. It basically depends on who you talk to :) Some people in the field like to call them panels, some call them panes (this is the term given also by the GDT), and others call them frames (used also by Microsoft). They are the parts of a window.
For example, if you have Internet Explorer and you click on the menu-bar item "Search", you will get a new "volet" on the left side of your screen, where you'll do your search.
