neutral  Tony M: 'reconversion' isn't much used in this sense in EN — it's a bit of a faux ami, really.

agree  writeaway: yup absolutely and in the context it's pretty clear anyway

neutral  Anne Bohy: I'm not that sure that "retraining" conveys the meaning. It's not about getting more skills in the same job, but about learning a different job. There is a difference between "reconversion" and "recyclage".
2 hrs
  -> Retraining means acquiring different skills.
neutral  B D Finch: "Retraining" can mean updating/improving skills in the same field or (usually phrased: retraining as an XXX) acquiring skills in a new field.
