Acronyms

An acronym is the shortened form of a word or phrase.

Guidelines

  • If the acronym is specific to an industry or software and a reader may not recognize it, write it out.
  • For every topic, write out the full term, followed by the acronym in parentheses. As you continue writing, you can use the abbreviation in place of the full term.

Example

Each document needs a corresponding Document Type Configuration (DTC). The DTC tells Heretto CCMS what documents to associate with the configuration.
