English term or phrase: On Screen Display(OSD) languages to be shorted
Hi, could you do me a favor?

I have French OSD words translated from the following English sources.
However these words are exceeding the digit limits so that they must be shorted as long as the given digit limits.

Date=> Données (5 digits(characters) are available for this word)
Password Lock => Verroui. Mot de passe (18 digits(characters) are available for this word)

Would you please short these French words as long as the given digit limits?

Thanks in advance. Andy.

Explanation:
Date => Date (are u sure it's "date" and not "data" ?)

Password Lock => Mot de passe

French sentences are usually longer than english sentence so we have often this kind of problem !

Explanation:
* Data = Données (6 characters.. impossibile shorter)
or you can perhaps said:
Data = info (for 4 characters is ok)

* Password Lock = Ver. mot de passe (17 characters is OK)
