American and British equivalencies

In the British and Commonwealth English, the "rump steak" is commonly called the "sirloin" in American English. On the other hand, British "sirloin" is called "porterhouse" by Americans.[1]

In the French cuisines

In the French cuisine vocabulary, the rump steak has been formerly called the culotte (literally, the 'trousers', the 'pants', see a 19th century French diagram, here) but somewhere in the 20th century the French language definitely dropped the word culotte, replacing it by the English term "rump steak". Nowadays, the accepted correct spellings, in French, are rumsteak, rumsteck, romsteak or romsteck, a loanword directly borrowed from the English, although with modified orthography.[2]
