steel processing
Explanation:
GDT:

processing élaboration n. f.

Syn.
transformation n. f.



Contexte :
Dans ce cas, l'affinage et la mise au point du métal sont effectués sous laitier à quelque 20 % de FeO, c'est-à-dire que l'élaboration est effectuée sans décrassage complet et réfection d'un laitier désoxydé et réducteur. Ce procédé, qui s'apparente à la technique de l'élaboration Martin, assure une productivité accrue du four en permettant de réduire les temps d'affinage à 30 ou 45 mn et est très largement utilisé pour la fabrication des aciers au carbone ordinaire.

refining of the steel


Explanation:
These are clearly all phases during the overall processing or production of the steel, so something more precise is needed than these two words.

The process after casting is "refining".

For references, see e.g. Kempe's Engineers' Handbook

steelmaking


Explanation:
Both Termium and LGDT (two entries in LGDT!) give **steelmaking** for "élaboration de l'acier." And the whole string of processes, in English, also includes "steelmaking" in the same order. Found with a Google search:

AISE Rolling and Finishing Publications
... Rolling and Finishing You will need ... reduction and coating processes. Stock No. R6 ... plants for steelmaking, casting, hot and cold rolling, and coating ...

Anglais:
steelmaking (a)
The process of making steel from solid or molten pig iron, with or without admixture with steel scrap. (b)
Contexte(s): Steelmaking involves the deliberate addition of various chemical elements to the molten metal to effect several desirable ends. These ends may include deoxidation of the molten metal to the desired degree, control of grain size, improvement of the mechanical and physical properties and corrosion resistance of the steel, increase of the response of the steel to subsequent heat treatment, or attainment of other specific effects that are discussed elsewhere in this book. (c)
Français:
aciérage n m (a)
Méthode d'obtention de l'acier, ou permettant de donner à un métal une dureté identique à celle de l'acier. (d)
