How do languages other than English describe this?

Hi all,
I had a conversation with someone today and realised there is something I feel I ought to know but don't. So I'm wondering if some people here can give me an answer.

To example my conundrum. In English when we take a foreign word and adapt it into English we "anglicise" it. What is the word used by other languages to example the same phenomenon?

Many thanks...
