English to English translations [PRO] Printing & Publishing / abbreviation
English term or phrase:abbreviation (telephone)
Not sure whether this is really a "pro" question but I would like some advice. I am checking a company address book giving the mailing addresses, phone numbers, etc. of all its outlets across the world. The layout has been done by a Belgian agency and I noted that before each of the phone numbers, they put the abbreviation "Tel.". I have however also seen "Phone" in other texts. I have lived out of the UK for so long now that I am not really sure which of these (or even another) abbreviation is correct. I'm not exactly running a straw poll but I should be interested in feedback, especially from people "back home" rather than old ex-pats like myself!
