French term or phrase: more on étude DCE
More context: they talk about different types of engineering studies - DCE, APS and APD. According to Termium, APS = preliminary design study and APD = final design study. DCE is mentioned as the 3rd study. Maybe someone with engineering knowledge recognizes it.

Thanks

Thanks a lot Marcus - Great save! I did need Nikki's explanation but yours was the first so it seems fair to award the points to you (and to her for the first one). I wish there were a way to split points on this system, but anyway you both were helpful (and Cecilia too) and I appreciate it!

Bonne journee,

distributed computing environment


Explanation:
Or data communication equipment (although I'd go for the former). They may have used the English acronym for this IT term (very common in the industry across borders).

company consultation files


Explanation:
- Tender consultation file
- Company consultation file : http://www.bethune.cci.fr/investiruk/constneuvuk/html/constn... : (A French site which appears to use this term for DCE)

CVs are often hard to translate. There’s usually lots of jargon and shorthand key words which those in the know will pick up on – are meant to pick up on – but which to neophytes are not clear at all.

I punched « Etude DCE Boujdour » into Google.com which came up with one hit but a useful one, no doubt !

It’s to do with an invitaion to tender for a contract to supply of drinking water to the town of Boujdour.
« DCE » is short for « dossier de consultation des entreprises (entrepreneurs) », a term which is used by others too in contexts realting to public tender consultation processes.
