If it's standard programming abbreviations (i.e. naming conventions) you're looking for, try some of the programming training guides for various languages--I know that one of the Sun guides for programming Java contains such a list of standards. I've got a brief list we're using for java conventions--I'd be happy to forward it to you if you'd like. Contact me off list.

Does anyone know of a good list of standard abbreviations, preferably online. My web search yields all kinds of specialized acronym and abbreviation lists, from chemical terms to military acronyms to abbreviations used in medicine and electronics. I've
even found a list of abbreviations that are likely to be read/heard by brain tumor patients. <sigh>

But I'm looking for something more general --something for a programming team to use when naming variables to standardize abbreviations for "number", "package", "manager", etc. I'm trying to keep a multi-lingual team from getting too creative. ;-
