Marketing
French term or phrase: Commerce
Since "commerce" can be translated in a variety of ways in English, depending on the context, I'm not sure how to translate it when it simply appears among a list of industries. I'm translating a document for a company that organizes trade shows, and the document lists the industries it puts on shows for. "Commerce" is among them. My two thoughts were simply keeping "Commerce" (that is, after all, the term used for Internet trade - e-commerce) or "Retail/Wholesale." Any thoughts?
