Hello everbody, I have to translate about 800 strings of measure units (abbreviations) from English into Spanish. Could you please recommend some database? It´s about all kinds of units, and it´s not easy to find all of them in Internet by general search.

Depends what units they are? Jan 30, 2015

There are plenty of excellent resources online, I'd be surprised if you can't find what you need. You might start by researching on "SI units" (assuming, of course, that they are!)

Generally, most units are pretty much international, so I wonder just what ones you are having trouble with? Above all, the abbreviations are standard, only the long-hand versions of the words may change between languages.

Perhaps if you give us some examples of the problem ones, and/or the specialist field in which they occur, if there is one, we might be able to give you more targetted support.
