Regular readers may know that one of my pet hates is acronyms and abbreviations… so whenever I see a list to help decipher them, it always pleases me. I recently came across this list, tucked in amongst the Interinstitutional style guide of the European Union.
By scrolling down the list of languages on the top right, you can display the list in alphabetical order in 23 languages: Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish and Swedish.
