en tant que

Bonjour.  This time the word of the day is a phrase.  En tant que is a French conjunction that means as (that is, in the role of).
  • Il est ici en tant que touriste. 
He's here as a tourist.
  • Quelques heures avant de jouer pour la première fois devant son public en tant que numéro un mondial, il se blesse à la cuisse.
A few hours before playing for the first time in public as number one in the world, he injured his thigh.
