German term or phrase: z.K. / wv
Not much context unfortunately - a letter is sent to a company advising them of a negative decision in an appeal, with a copy of an earlier letter attached. At the end of the copy letter there are two lines after the signature -
'2. Abdruck an 23 z.K'
'3. Wv. 30.11.2000'
I would be grateful for any suggestions on this.
English translation:FYI / resubmission
Explanation:
z.K. - zur Kenntnis[nahme] - for information/for your information. In this case, it looks like the second copy goes to 23 (a deparment) for information.

Wv - Wiederverwendung, Weiterverwendung, Wiedervorlage
wv - wieder vorlegen, weiter vorlegen - resubmit
Muret-Sanders Enzyklop. WB, does list Wv - Wiedervorlage - resubmission, and that makes sense within the context you give.
HTH!

I am not sure on Wv ...

would "Wiedervorlage" fit in your context?

Hope this helps some.
