I am preparing a document where I have to use SI units and US Customary units, Yet I have 2 issues:

  • I can use siunitx package to insert SI units, but what package can I use to insert US Customary units in a similar manner?

  • siunitx package insert only the abbreviated form of the unit, for example kilogram is inserted as kg, is there a way to insert the full description of the units?

  • On the second part, unit symbols are not abbreviations: the siunitx package is about typesetting in mathematical contexts, not writing out 'in words'. There are various acronym/glossary packages one could use if you want to have the 'full text' available.

  • There are several questions on defining new units, for example tex.stackexchange.com/questions/6016/…

  • @ Joseph, all solutions regarding US customary units rely on defining the units. Is there a package, an available options which provides a systematic approach for the use of the US customary units as in siunitx?
