|Spanish term or phrase: Y Ud?|
"ud" is the abbreviation for "usted" but you may then wonder when to use "usted" instead of "tu". They are both translated as "you".
The difference is that the former is formal while the latter is familiar or informal. The "usted" would be used when addressing an older person, someone you don't know, etc. The "tu" is used when talking to your wife, your friend, your brother/sister, and nowadays your parents.
