Many customers used to come to our Bank office to search where their checks were.  I used to tell them, go to the room where checks are truncating.

Wikipedia defines cheque truncation:

Cheque truncation (check truncation in American English) is a cheque clearance system that involves the digitalisation of a physical paper cheque into a substitute electronic form for transmission to the paying bank. The process of cheque clearance, involving data matching and verification, is done using digital images instead of paper copies.

Is this a wrong to use the sentence "Go to the room where checks are truncating"?

"checks are truncating" in this context means recording of checks AND OTHER RELATED WORKS DONE in the machine[computer].

truncate — origin c15 [earlier me] as truncation from Latin TRUNCAT, TRUNCARE[MAIM]. Cut something off means stop filming or recording and move to another shot in a film., make a film into a coherent whole by removing or reordering parts, make [a sound recording].

Dictionary (Lexico) meaning of truncate[verb] is:

to shorten by cutting off the top OR end. AND CUTTING SOMETHING OFF. AS PER CONCISE OXFORD DICTIONARY-TENTH EDITION INDIAN EDITION.

So truncating is used to mean make a film into a coherent whole by removing or reordering parts, make[a sound recording]. So the truncation of checks in offices is filming of the checks and make [a sound recording].

  • CHECKS IN THIS CONTEXT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE SENTENCE. – user26375 Mar 26 at 5:45
