Here is an example that came from a document talking about salary bonuses: 未体年假折现.

My best guess for 未体 would be "haven't done". So the example above would be translated to "discount for not taking annual leave".

I think that's a typo, it should be 未休, which not yet taken 未休年假折现: cash redeems for un-taken annual holiday

未 means 'not yet', 休 is 'taking a holiday'. 我的年假还未休。我还未休年假。 –  mikespook Mar 6 at 0:42

"未体" it's a typo, 100% for sure.

the correct word based on the context should be "未休", means not taken.

the reason why this typo happened could possibly be that the typer was using a kind of Chines input method based on characters strokes, rather than IMEs based on pronunciations, because "体" and "休" are quite similar in strokes.

It may come from a scan, which caused the typo. –  songyuanyao Mar 6 at 8:06
    
yes, OCR technology also makes mistakes sometimes :) –  j5shi Mar 6 at 8:52

That's right, it's a typo, it should be 未休, 休假 means take holidays, means haven't done something.

so

未休年假折现 means compensate someone by money if he does not take annual leave.
