I chose this because the context, I think, was in connection with Interface terminology. Many thanks!

Uso de archivos AVI (Audio Video Interleaved)


Explanation:
AVI stands for Audio
Video Interleaved

Since in Spanish you can't (or shouldn't) use plurals in an acronym as in English (AVIs), I suggest "archivos" or "ficheros" before it (depending on the Spanish you are translating into).

Example:
En todo caso, las capacidades de este nuevo navegador de MS Explorer, son impresionantes, dado que soporta sonidos tanto archivos AVI (Audio Video Interleaved) como sonido en segundo plano, consiguiendo con ello unas páginas Web altamente interactivas y llamativas"

SUERTE!

Imágenes Visuales Animadas


Explanation:
You may first refer to an AVI, and in parenthesis explain what they are (Imágenes Visuales Animadas)
o, Imágenes Visuales Animadas (AVIs, por sus siglas en inglés). Once you decide to call it either of these two you must continue doing so throughout the document in order to maintain the same terminology (unificar la terminología) and not confuse the prime readers.

Best of luck!
