    Hi everybody,
    I need to know how to translate contrôleur de gestion into English because I want to apply for a course in order to become that one...
    But as I didn't find, I ask you for help.
    Is the field comptabilité analytique correct ? Thus it could be management accounting analyst ?
    Thank you all.

    Je vous suggère de jeter un oeil sur qui donne plusieurs résultats pour contrôleur de gestion.
    Un copier/coller du lien vers les fiches ne donne malheureusement rien, désolée... :(

    thank you, I've looked up in many different sources, even asking a friend of mine who's an Australian, but I've never managed to be clear enough !

    cost controller sounds fine,

    PS : Agnès, your website is great as well ! thank you so much ! I'm wondering how I couldn't find it by my own before...? :confused:

    Contrôleur de Gestion se dit "Management Accountant" ou "Commercial Management Accountant" quand il a une dimension plus orientée business, par exemple, quand il est impliqué dans l'analyse des écarts de produits, de la marge, etc...
    En UK ou US, le contrôleur de gestion a une fonction assez comptable en soi, mais selon ses fonctions et ses responsabilités, on peut le retrouver sous la forme de "Financial Analyst".

    Management accountant would be the correct translation for me . ( Management accountancy for "contrôle de gestion" )

    ( Cost accountancy and cost accountant are older terms )

    I spend my time telling my students not to say management control or controller!! ( which is the "Google" translation )

    You will find the term " Financial controller " , especially in the USA , it tends to be quite a high level post with overall responsibility for finance aand accounting .

    Many firms have particular titles for jobs in this area .

    It is always difficult to translate "contrôle" , "pilotage" , "suivi" etc in this field .
