Marketing - Forestry / Wood / Timber / Study for Forestry in Quebec, Canada
French term or phrase: transposition des prix
I am translating a study performed for the Forestry industry in Quebec, Canada. This is specifically for marketing of timber harvested in the province of Quebec.

The document contains several references to "transposition des prix" or "prix transposé". I cannot find any specific translations into English of this particular use of the word "transposition" and hope someone can give me a hand.

Reference is made to this term in regards to the government agency setting the price, as can be seen in the context below. Any help will be very appreciated:

La seule étude sur le sujet a été conduite en Colombie-Britannique, avec comme base des
forêts généralement plus homogènes qu’au Québec et une possibilité
forestière de plus de 80 Mm3. L’étude conclut qu’à partir de 15 % des
volumes (12 Mm3), le niveau de précision de la valeur des prix
commence à se stabiliser, ce qui pourrait permettre une **transposition
des prix** vers les bois de garantie. La Colombie-Britannique a fixé à 20 %
des volumes (16 Mm3) la zone de confort pour la **transposition des prix**.

Le BMMB verra à la collecte, la compilation et la diffusion des données du marché en ce
qui concerne le prix et les caractéristiques des bois vendus. Il sera
également responsable de la **transposition des prix**, donc de la
tarification vers les bois sous garantie d’approvisionnement.

Thank you very much for your help in advance!

You could use it as a noun: "price adaptation" but that sounds a bit wordy.
