    Comment on dit "standard téléphonique" en anglais, sachant que ce n'est pas de l'appareil dont on veut parler mais du département. Does "telephone department" fit?Thank you so much.

    Thank you Victoria1
    When we say switchboard, could we understand that we mean the department?

    Switchboard is good.

    You wouldn't say the switchboard department, as you wouldn't say 'reception department' for 'accueil'.
