Hello to all,

I am doing a short (one page) translation and in the original paper there are a lot of acronyms. My question is how do I handle that? Do I translate them? I don\'t have a clue as to what they stand for. Also they mention different types of gas (such as AE 76), should I just keep it the way it is?

Thanks for your advice

i think it depends very much... Sep 14, 2002

if there exists a corresponding acronym in the language you are translating into you sure should use it.

AE 76 = АИ 76 Sep 18, 2002

Если это касается бензина, то проще посмотреть, какие сорта используются в России. У нас их не так много: 76, 92, 95 (96) и 98.

Порылся по интернету -- что-то ничего не нашел толкового...
