Default MoBo international?

Does anyone know how a maneuvering board is called in languages other than English? I suppose all navies must use something of the kind but I couldn't find anything about how they've done in German or French navy, and when I showed a DMA 5090 board printed to a friend who is familiar with sailing but not with submarines, and to a seller in a store for sport sailors they had no idea of what it was.

By the way, it seems that on German U-boats the plotting table was a simple wooden desk and not a DRT with the moving light bug?

For ships at sea distressed
Or split against my breast"
