In French we also use "convolution" to describe the mathematical operation of
convolution. We sometimes talk of convolving and "convoluer" (verb) in French,
but I am not sure if it is a real French word. Other expressions are "linear
convolution", "periodic convolution" and "circular convolution", I was assuming
that you were talking about the mathematical aspects of convolution ...
For any French/English translation of rather technical terms, take a look at
www.granddictionnaire.com which is very precise.
