English term or phrase: I need the correct abbreviations for Height, Width
I'm editing a catalog, and I have a feeling the abbreviations used might not be the correct ones.

Explanation:
Height = "A" for "Altura"
Width and Depth = "An" could be used for "Ancho".
Length = "L" for "Longitud"

I really hope it helps. Good luck.

Height = A; Width = A;


Explanation:
Height = altura = A
Width = ancho = A

We generally write

A X L X A

(alto x largo x ancho)
(o altura x longitud x ancho)

Explanation:
Realmente las abreviaciones por alture y ancho no deberian ser traducciones, si no que o estan en ewl diccionasrio o uno las usa con una explicación.
Puedo sugerir lo siguiente:
Height = Altura = Alt.
Width = Ancho = Anch.
