translation french

can someone please give a good translation for 'affinity' to french? I'm stuck, as affinity itself is a misnomer already in english.

Hi petrossa

When you talk about 'affinity' I believe you mean 'CPU affinity' or 'processor affinity' don't you ?

I believe you may translate in french as 'affinité du processeur'  which seems to be widely used with Microsoft french sites and also found several times on google.

See http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microprocesseur

or

http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/fr/Library/70924945-5e6c-4a29-9476-6cfe17afee191036.mspx?mfr=true


Eventually we may translate as 'CPU associé' (to a process) or 'CPU préféré' (for a process)


Hop this help  ;)

tnx Nico. seen affinité de processeur but found it without meaning for a novice. I'm trying to translate so everyday joe can use it. Affinité is normally used for animate objects. I'll go with your last suggestion. I think i'll also replace 'processeur' with CPU everywhere as this is even in msr Lang's country generally known.

for everybody else who waits for the french, i've had a harddisk meltdown. my backup was not too old but still i'll have to redo a part
