French to English translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Accounting / financial statements
French term or phrase: traite semestrielle
On the same list (see earlier question) under net debt:

Company x sold company y some manufacturing equipment; this equipment is "payables par traite semestrielle"

by draft every six months? Is there a more accurate term for this context?

Explanation:
I would agree with you. The CNCC dictionary (quoted earlier) gives "bill of exchange" for "traite" and "sight draft" for "traite à vue."
