French term or phrase: chef d'edition
I found this in many French Web sites but did not find an English equivalent. It was used in one English site, but was left in French. "Au fil des pages, le ton du magazine (de plus en plus interactif) est homogene, grace au travail du chef d'edition, X." Thanks, Karen

I had also thought of editor-in-chief but always thought the term in French was "redacteur en chef." Is this a new term for the same thing? It's clear that chief editor is another possibility, but editor-in-chief is more common in the U.S. Thanks to all of you. Karen
