English to English translations [PRO] Other / abbreviation
English term or phrase:HR and Scotland
not much context (in a list):
- line managers of senior managers
- line managers of middle managers in HR and Scotland
this is from a list of instructions on how annual appraisals of the staff shall be carried out at a multinational company (what's more, there is no word about the Scots anywhere, otherwise)
I have a strong feeling that the paper was written (or translated) by a person who was not a native English speaker, so could it be that "HR" is "UK" in some language?
actually, I already asked the client but there is no answer yet and the whole thing is due by Monday morning... You know, the usual stuff. To Alison: sorry, I was silly, of course, it can't be UK...As to HR for Hungary, I have serious doubts (RH would be thinkable, but never heard that). Most probably, it is HR + for some reason, they handle their subsidiary in Scotland separately for that purpose. I'll let you know :)
