    Welcome to the forum, Bailo !

    "Floating point" (math) is "virgule flottante".
    It is used in such expressions as :
    Un nombre en virgule flottante = a floating-point number
    Des données en virgule flottante = floating-point data
    Des calculs en virgule flottante = floating-point calculations
    Un coprocesseur pour virgule flottante = a F-P co-processor.

    (And you can add "V. F. simple ou double précision")
