I am currently using the
acronym package to handle acronyms/abbreviations in my thesis.
I am writing in German, but I use a couple of English acronyms because either no German acronym exists or the English one simply more commonly used. So when introducing the acronym, I want/need to use the German word in text (as "long" form) but I want to include the English long form in parentheses alongside the (English) acronym. And of course, both German and English should show up in the list of acronyms.
- German Term: Steuergerät
- English Term: Electronic Control Unit
- Acronym: ECU
So in my text I'd like to have:
.... Steuergerät( Electronic Control Unit, ECU) ....
and later simply have
.... ECU ....
In the list of acronyms, it should show up as:
ECU Steuergerät (Electronic Control Unit)
ECU Electronic Control Unit (Steuergerät)
Is there a way to include a translation in the long version of an acronym?
EDIT: As pointed out by @NicolaTalbot, the use case is the same than Using the glossaries package for English acronyms in German documents. Is there a way to achieve this with the
acronym package as well or do I need to switch packages?
