French term or phrase: passage baie
Good morning everyone!

I'm looking for the English translation of the following group of words: "passage baie".

Here is the entire paragraph:

"A la fin du passage baie :
* Vérifier la présence du ressort de masse et de l’étiquette de garantie :
* Reboucher toutes les sorties avec
- des capuchons verts foncés dans le cas de modules SM
- des capuchons blancs dans le cas de modules MM
* Ajouter les étiquettes de longueur d’onde sur les « optical shutters »
* Ajouter le polycarbonate de connectique sur la poignée"

Thank you for your help!... And have a Merry Christmas!

Explanation:
This is one of those instances where you simply cannot consider the terms in isolation, you have to look at the phrase as a whole.

The excat translation is going to depend on your precise overall context, and possibly what terms you have used elsewhere; what I have suggested above is just an indication, to give you the general idea.

It all depdns, you see, on whether this is a routin inspection, a commissioning visit, etc.

Generally, in En we would use a verbal expression like 'when you have finished...' instead of one involving nouns like 'à la fin du passage'.

  -> Thanks, Terry! Merry Christmas to you!

neutral  B D Finch: Thinking back to an earlier discussion, why is it a "bay" here, rather than a "cubicle"?

  -> Computer equipment is usually fitted into standard racks, known as 19" bays; 'cubicle' translates 'cellule', but in a very specific high-power electrical context only
