    Default French abbreviation for United States?

    Hi,

    Does anybody know the correct abbreviation for United States in french ?
    Maybe É-U? Or É.-U?
    Also, I would like to know if the same abreviation is used in both French canadian and French from France.

    Thank you.

    Hello nabylm Maybe Frank van den Eeden will be along shortly. He's our resident French speaker. I'm sure he knows.

    Meanwhile, here is a link:

    Just check this link from the Canadian government: UNITED STATES [1 record] - TERMIUM*Plus® — Search*-*TERMIUM Plus®
    Comment from that link: «É.-U.» est l'abréviation des deux formes du nom du pays. USA est l'indicatif à trois lettres pour représenter la forme longue, «États-Unis d'Amérique», tandis que US est l'indicatif à deux lettres pour représenter la forme abrégée, «États-Unis». Les indicatifs reconnus par l'ISO servent pour l'adressage du courrier. L'OTAN utilise le code US.
