I'm trying to adjust this abreviation list by adding a space in front of every word in bold.

enter image description here

this is the code :

\textbf{2TUP }  Two Tracks Unified Process ~\par
 \textbf{GSM}  Global System for Mobile Communications  ~\par
 \textbf{BTS}  Base Transceiver Station ~\par
 \textbf{BSC}  Base Station Controller ~\par
 \textbf{MSC} Mobile service Switching Center ~\par
 \textbf{BI} Business Intelligence ~\par
 \textbf{ETL} Extract Transform Load ~\par
 \textbf{KPI} Key Performance Indicator ~\par

could some one help me fix it please .

  • This is a list of acronyms and should not be setup by hand this way. Please have a look on glossaries, acronyms or acro package, for example – user31729 Jun 14 '16 at 14:49

    If you insist on a manual list then use a description list for example – clemens Jun 14 '16 at 15:15

As clemens said,

If you insist on a manual list then use a description

This should work:

\begin{description}
\item[2TUP]  Two Tracks Unified Process
 \item[GSM]  Global System for Mobile Communications
 \item[BTS]  Base Transceiver Station
 \item[BSC]  Base Station Controller
 \item[MSC] Mobile service Switching Center
 \item[BI] Business Intelligence
 \item[ETL] Extract Transform Load
 \item[KPI] Key Performance Indicator
\end{description}

If you need more indentation before the bold words, I would advise you to take a look at this post: Indenting description lists
