I don't know the specifics of Microsoft Exchange, but in auth systems
in general a tenant is usually a sort of group that you log in with. If
I log in as "shaunm" in the "admin" tenant, I might have different
privileges than if I log in as "shaunm" in the "user" tenant.

It's a terrible term that leads to lots of StackExchange questions and
general confusion among users and translators.

If you can't find how Microsoft translates it for your language, maybe
check OpenStack, which also uses the term.
