 French term or phrase: repère normé "Le plan de coupe du materiau critsyallin est défini par la position deson vecteur normal V, qui est lui meme défini par ses coordonnées (x,y,z) dans un repere normé Oex, ey, ez." In a patent for producing a vibrating crystalline mechanical resonator for use in a gyroscope used in missile control.
 English translation:reference frame with unit vectors ex, ey, ez Explanation:The meaning is this: the normal vector of the cut plane, V can be decomposed as V = x * ex + y * ey + z * ez, where x, y and z are its coordinates with respect to the system of unit vectors ex, ey and ez. (In usual notation, e is bold, and has x, y or z in the subscript.) "unit vectors" implies that the system is normed.

I am not sure, but here is a link that might be helpful for crystallography.
They seem to be points on a graph

Explanation:
a reference system into which the vector is set.
I am pretty sure that's it.

Explanation:
The meaning is this: the normal vector of the cut plane, V can be decomposed as
V = x * ex + y * ey + z * ez,
where x, y and z are its coordinates with respect to the system of unit vectors ex, ey and ez. (In usual notation, e is bold, and has x, y or z in the subscript.)

"unit vectors" implies that the system is normed.

vecteur = vector
repère is a slightly less technical term, identifier is also used
