English translation: thats one

Russian term or phrase: abbreviations
Since I translate from Russian into English, I am most interested in Russian abbreviations, and I rely on sokr.ru quite often, along with other sources. But now I have an assignment (not translation) that requires some knowledge of English technical abbreviations. I have found several acronym or abbreviation finders on the web, but I wonder if my colleagues translating from English have a favorite English site comparable to sokr.ru in Russian?

Thanks!
Jim
