hello, I have a text on drugs (or better,a powerpoint presentation) written by Dutch native speakers and it contains the following sentence (under the heading 'results of efforts to counter drug trafficking): confiscated amounts i.r.t. total amounts EU. Any idea what i.r.t. means?

  -> Thanks!

neutral  Chris Hopley: "In relatie tot" is correct, of course. However, "as a proportion of" would be a much better translation here. "In relation to" (not to mention the use of a Dutch abbr. in English) has a distinct whiff of Dunglish about it!!

neutral  AllisonK: have to agree with Chris on this one - it's a numeric amount therefore 'proportion' makes more sense here IMHO
