We're making a new product that gets a generic name. The current product is
a "Test Application," and is designed for manufacturing personnel.

The new product is designed for R&D lab personnel. It must be called either
"Lab Application" or "Laboratory Application"

What learning impediments do you see with "Lab Application?"
Are there international/translation consequences for using the word "lab"
instead of "laboratory?"

Both titles get shortened to LA and TA, for both customers as well as us.
