El diccionario Routledge aporta la siguiente traducción para PLC:

abbr Br E (public limited company) GEN COMM ≈ S.A. (sociedad anónima), ≈ S.A.A. (sociedad anónima por acciones)

Y el diccionatio de Alcaraz Varó/Hughes:

sociedad anónima cuyas acciones cotizan en Bolsa; el nombre equivalente en los Estados Unidos es incorporated business/company, INC.

Yo lo traduciría o no (por S.A.) o (S.A.A.) en función de como aparece en el texto. Si figura inmediatamente después del nombre de una empresa, no lo traduciría.

Un saludo.
