    Hello,

    What would "à l'origine" mean in the following sentence?

    "emprunts à 1 an maximum à l'origine".

    It appears in a balance sheet of a company.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    In this sentence, "à l'origine" means that at the date the loan was taken out, it was supposed to last 1 year or less. Maybe it will last more than 1 year, maybe less...

    Dans ce contexte, on trouve la traduction suivante pour à l'origine: at the outset
