French term or phrase: AA.VV.
¿Alguien sabe cómo se desglosa esta sigla en francés (o latín, aparentemente) y si en castellano se utiliza igual o tiene otra forma? El contexto son referencias bibliográficas. Gracias.

Spanish translation:Auctores Varii
Explanation:
AA.VV. stands for Auctores Varii, Various Authors, and it's used when a book is authored by more than 3 people, for example, a collection of articles on a certain subject with several authors.
In Italian and in French it stays the same, may be in Spanish, too, check on the Web.

In case you want to know, in Spanish it stays the same and it means, certainly, "autores varios". You can also use the acronym "VV.AA" for "varios autores". Thank you very much. I imagined that the origin was latin, but I wasn't really sure if it was used in Spanish. Thank you again.
