    Default Translation of abbreviation of "ciudad" (cd.) in English

    Hello everyone! I am translating a literary text where is obligatory to translate the abbreviation of "ciudad" (cd.) to english.

    Estoy traduciendo al inglés un texto literario donde es indispensable traducir "La cd. podrida" así, abreviado.
    Creo que he visto ct. para abreviar city, pero no estoy segura, ¿alguien me podría ayudar? Mil gracias de antemano.

    hello,

    I always though that the abbreviation of ciudad in Spanish was cdad.

    I've never seen the word city abbreviated in English.

    Thumbs up Cd./City

    Buenas noches,

    I agree with the previous posts. I have never seen the word "city" abbreviated. I came across a different forum in which somebody suggested "CTY," but like I said, I've never seen it before.

    Hope this helps!

    Un saludo
