Explanation:
I'm assuming that this may have something to do with cable installation (or pulling), with the information given. ;) One method to pull cable through pipes, walls, conduit, etc. is to attach a nylon line (which is more flexible) to the actual cable and feed the nylon line through first (amorçer) and subsequently pull the cable through.

HTH & bon courage,

priming cap, primer


Explanation:
I don't know if this has anything to do with cables or not, but this is what my dictionary suggests for technical language. A "priming cap" or a "primer" is a device or mechanism of some sort. (There is also a cedilla on the "c".)

Would this make any sense?

I'm glad I haven't got your cables translation to do!

baiting (in preparation for welding). If this has anything


Explanation:
to do with Information Technology, however, it means booting (as in "boot up"). Figuratively (economics, for example) it has a related meaning.
