Topic: Schlumberger
Posted: Wednesday, January 27, 2016 11:56:38 AM
Schlumberger is not a german name, but a french one (from Alsace, where people spoke and still speak a german dialekt, and french too). The company is not german but french american, and probably now more american than french.
Schlumberger is pronounced with french pronounciation, "schloumbergé" approximatively "shloom-ber-gé" the same "é" we find in café or sauté. Obviously this pronounciation may have changed in America.
