Portuguese to English translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / bank statement (Portuguese from Angola)
Portuguese term or phrase: IBAN
This is a bank statement. Under the account number it shows "IBAN" followed by the number "A000000..."
The source language is Portuguese, from Angola.

Does anyone have an idea what "IBAN" stands for? Perhaps, "Internet banking"?. Wild guess.

TIA
