I think you can we can use same word for every language. "NickBatching" - in honor of Nick Batsch, the first man who used this body position to insrease swoop distance :)

No real secret about it, really. Slide down on your rears and lean forward.
Completely opening up your chest strap and a belly band to lean on is a must.

Stretching one's shoulders helps.

You can hook your harness and risers up to suspension points and practice on the ground

I don't know if there is a name for it but it shows up in most newer swooping videos.

I'm not sure if this is the right name or not, but we call it 'flightmode'.
