Hello !

Could someone help me with this sentence ? I'm trying to translate it to French, but the word "lean" is a real problem to me.

Here's the whole sentence : "Downsizing is a reduction in the workforce in order to create a lean and more competitive company."

As you can see, this is about economics...

    J'aurai plutôt opté pour une traduction allant dans le sens de "downsizing". Si on compare la société à une entité humaine, c'est un peu comme la faire "maigrir", la "rendre fine", l'"alléger".
    "Réduire les effectifs afin d'alléger la société et la rendre compétitive"
