2.6 Tips for Writing the Article
January 20, 2009 Leave a comment
Please verify the correct spelling of companies, technical terms and acronyms: for example, ‘easyJet’ (not EasyJet or Easy Jet) and ‘oneworld’ (not OneWorld, or Oneworld).
Please use abbreviations only after the full name has been mentioned in its entirety, followed by the abbreviation in brackets. For example, “ .. Fly-By-Wire (FBW) ..”. Everyday words are not abbreviated, so please use ‘etcetera’ instead of ‘etc’ and ‘per cent’ instead of ‘%’.
Please check if an organization has its own ‘official’ English translation. The ‘national’ name or abbreviation can be mentioned in brackets after its first instance: for example, ‘Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (Luchtverkeersleiding Nederland – LVNL)’.
