I just came across Acronyma, which is believed to be "the largest database of acronyms and abbreviations on the web". Well, I didn't find the specific acronyms I was looking for, but I couldn't help noticing that this website does offer databases in the following languages: English, Español, Français, Deutsch, Nederlands, Italiano, and Português. Hope you guys like it!

Looks like it, but searches in other languages Jan 8, 2006

Hi, Prokop:

I have been using AcronymFinder for a while now, but I believe it only searches terms in English (or those that the English language has borrowed from foreign languages).

What really caught my eye was that this other source searches the its database in different languages. Besides, you can also submit an acronym that you're sure of, but couldn't find there.

Cheers!

Hi Rafa.

Good point. For me, acronymfinder.com has been a sufficient source by now, as I work in the combination English-Czech. Therefore, I mostly need only English and Czech acronyms. English acronyms can be found at acronymfinder.com, and since there is no such database for Czech acronyms of which I'm aware, I simply have to google the desired acronym/abbreviation.
Anyway, I'm definitely adding the other source to my favorites.
