French term or phrase: in itinere
I know that this is Latin not French, however as it is within a document written in French, the language pair is deliberately chosen as French to English. I would normally translate this as "in progress", but I'm a bit puzzled about whether it is the programme or the evaluation that is ongoing.

This occurs as a title or description of an economic development report.

"Evaluation in itinere Programme XXX [Consultant Company Name] - [month year]"

"Le rapport d’évaluation in itinere 2010 représente la deuxième étape"

"... se réfère aux recommandations du doc 5 de la XX concernant l’évaluation stratégique in itinere, et en particulier aux points suivants"

Notes to answerer
Asker: So far that seems to fit the context better than the other candidate terms I thought of. I just was not sure whether it was an accepted translation of the term. "Pretentious" sounds good, though it does need to be readily understandable by readers who are not mother tongue English.

In Italian to English. A lot of the Google hits are Spanish or Italian - is it possible your text is itself a translation?

Asker: Thanks, but I answered that in a discussion note above. I am fairly sure that it was initially written in French, not in either Spanish or Italian. There are lots of French ghits too for in itinere.
