Does anyone know of a book that provides conventions for abbreviating
foreign terms in an interface? For example, my company is localizing our
product into Italian, and some of the Italian terms for the dialog boxes or
menus are much longer than their English equivalent. Is there a book or
reference guide that provides some conventions for how to abbreviate those
Italian terms in a meaningful way? Or is this more a matter of proper
interface design to handle the longer terms?
