French term or phrase:hôtels d’entreprises
Pour répondre à leurs besoins, l’Agglomération a développé une offre foncière et immobilière diversifiée. Pépinières, hôtels d’entreprises, ateliers-relais, villages d’entreprises artisanales et de services ....
Thanks, I see what you mean. It's probably the same thing, you're right. My problem is that in my text they want to attract 'big' international names (and already have some) so it's not just for start-ups and the 'hotel' bit seems to indicate short-term ...
hi Bourth ... I did check the glossaries but typed in whole term with an 's' so it didn't show up ... have now found it (text has gone so have more time!). Still wonder though if there's a difference between business centre per se and this kind of 'hotel'. Just checked out your website. Interesting, thanks but still haven't found exact term ...
only because it seems to be a little more specific than a normal business centre, which is why they use the term 'hotel'. But maybe you're right, maybe it is enough to simply use business centre ...(I have to make a quick decision!!)
But is there any way in your document of working in something like business centre along with a brief explanation of the leases the first time hôtels d’entreprises is mentioned, and then keeping it simple with BC from then on?
Hi suezen, I think you're right in that these places *offer* short-term corporate leases, but in the sentence above you need a term for a physical space. Of course, business centres offering short-term corporate leases is a bit of a mouthful!
Les Hôtels d’entreprises sont des structures locatives temporaires (5 ans)
Ces Hôtels aident les entreprises à démarrer leur activité ou à se développer dans de bonnes conditions jusqu’à ce qu’elles trouvent un lieu d’implantation durable que ce soit en propriété ou en location.
