Furlough or "on furlough" is currently an unapproved dict suggestion for EN<>FR.
- furlough: I noticed there is a distinction in the online dictionaries between the American and the general use:
The monolingual "oxforddictionaries" summes it up like this:
British and world English - furlough: Leave of absence, especially that granted to a member of the services or a missionary: a civil servant home on furlough [count noun]: a six-week furlough in Australia.
In my opinion this can be translated into French as: "permission""http://enfr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=1291398 . The other entry "to be on furlough" = "être en permission" is also based on this. However, nitram sees both as American English.
