My brain has frozen and I can't get it started again...
I've been asked to help translate (from English to French) some internal
documents for our product release, and one of the terms that has me
stumped is SHRINK-WRAP.
The context is "Shrink-wrapped software solution..."
For the life of me, I can't think of a way to translate the word without
using an entire sentence.
Please reply directly to me, as I am sure this is of very limited
interest to the rest of the list.
