# printglossary makes abbreviations ending with periods

I use the `glossaries` package for my glossary and some acronyms:

``````\usepackage{datatool}
\usepackage[ngerman]{translator}
\usepackage[nonumberlist,acronym,toc,section]{glossaries}

\makeglossaries

...

/% Glossary
\printglossary[style=altlist,title=Glossar]

/% Acronyms
\deftranslation[to=German]{Acronyms}{Akronyme}
\printglossary[type=\acronymtype,style=long]
``````

Curiously, glossaries makes a period after each acronym.

Screnshot:

How can you change that?

Use the `nopostdot` package option – clemens Jan 19 '13 at 16:14

Just as cgnieder has said, you have to use the `nopostdot` option.

Example:

``````\usepackage[nopostdot,nonumberlist,acronym,toc,section]{glossaries}
``````
-
``````\printglossary[type=\acronymtype,style=super]
``````

Welcome to TeX.SX! As a general rule it is better to explain your solution at little:) – Andrew Aug 18 at 13:09
