My company

My company

I have probably changed the translation by thinking of “my company” as “my firm” (which is what i say in everyday English in this situation) and using “ma société”, but i’ve always been unsure of une société vs une entreprise vs une compagnie. Can this be clarified for once and for all !!?

Hi Anita, 

Here is my answer to a similar question. Société isn't wrong in this context as we don't know what type of company it is.

Bonne Continuation!

Hi Anita,

Very interesting!  

Have a look here  https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/compagnie-entreprise-soci%c3%a9t%c3%a9.664585/

Does this help?
