Bonjour Stellabelle,

 

“Moyennant quoi” could be translated as “such that”, “as a result of which” or “meaning that”. It's a very formal phrase and is used to the description of something. For example:

 

  • Les deux éléments vont de pair, moyennant quoi l'environnement marin va à coup sûr profiter des progrès futurs.
  • The two go hand in glove, such that the marine environment is sure to benefit from future advancements.

As I said, it is a very formal phrase and not really something you would hear in spoken language. 

 

I hope this helps,
