French term or phrase: partenaire privilegie (accent aigu)
Does anyone have a good translation for "privilegie"? Here's the sentence: "La compagnie americaine, qui compte peu de partenaires europeens, se satisfait de son accord avec son partenaire francais, bien que celui-ci soit dorenavant l'un des partenaires privilegies de l'alliance." Thanks, Karen

one of the partners who will benefit (profit) from the alliance
Explanation:
I see nothing specific to indicate there is a shareholding agreement, or that the privileges are specific to a status. (BTW, privilege does not have a "d").

I think this is closest to the meaning. The term does not refer to shareholders but companies that have banded together to provide joint services. I couldn't provide more info without giving away who the companies are. Thanks, Bono, for answering even though it's so late where you are. Much obliged! Karen

"senior partner" or "preferred shareholder"


Explanation:
I would suggest "senior partner" in this general context. Although, if this is in the larger context of stocks/shares of the company, "preferred shareholder" would be more suitable.

distinguinshed, trusted partner


Explanation:
Hi!

I would go for trusted in your case. I can think of quite a few ways of translating privilégié depending on context, and none would be close to 'priviledged'
Usually i would see either of the above solution for partners. While there are more versions if you were talking about a customer.
If you need other suggestions, tell me as it is late and i am tired but still up for another hour or so.

Hope this can help, not sure about what the usual terminology is in the States though.
