Тысяча долларов на английском сокращенно

  • #1

Hallo everybody!
I have a question: in Russia if we want to use a shortened form of a «thousand» we write «thsd». Is it understandable for native speakers? Or shall I better use «thou» or even «K»?

    • #2

    «thou» sounds REALLLLLY informal. I feel like I’ve only heard it used in rap songs.

    • #3

    I guess almost everyone would understand ‘thsd’ in context but it’s not a standard abbreviation. ‘Thou’ is a bit more commonly used though ‘k’ (or ‘g’ or ‘grand’ in colloquial spoken English) might be more recognisable.

    • #4

    So, for example, if write something like: «assets in the amount of RUR 1 234 567 K» it would be the same as «assets in the amount of RUR 1 234 567 thousand». Would it be OK for a formal letter?

    • #5

    So, for example, if write something like: «assets in the amount of RUR 1 234 567 K» it woild be the same as «assets in the amount of RUR 1 234 567 thousand». Would it be OK for a formal letter?

    It is not formal. I don’t think we have a formal way to abbreviate a thousand. We would just write out the number.

    • #6

    Well, this is not a good example as you are talking about figures in the billions. If it’s not a round figure you should just use the full number. To be honest, the biggest ‘thousand’ you can have is 999 so you might be just as well writing 999,000 as 999k.

    • #7

    Well, it is just a translation from Russian and I can’t change thousand to billion.

    • #8

    And what should I better use talking about thousand of tons or hectares, for ex.: 123 thousand tons of coil= 123 K tons of coil? 123 K ha?

    • #9

    I would say 123,000 tons of coil.
    For your large number from before, I would write RUR 1,234,567,000

    • #11

    In an engineering context, a thou is a thousandth of an inch.


    • #12

    And what should I better use talking about thousand of tons or hectares, for ex.: 123 thousand tons of coil= 123 K tons of coil? 123 K ha?

    In the metric system, a kiloton is a unit so you can say 123 kilotons or 123 kt.
    123,000 hectares is 12,300,000 ares (a hectare is 100 (hect- means 100) ares) so if the metric system was as scientifically ordered as advertised this should be 12.3 megaares(?) or 12.3 ma. However, the next unit above hectare is square kilometer (100 ha), so 123,000 ha is 1,230 km2 or 1,230 sq km.
    I think it would be odd to mix in a k in 123,000 ha — 123 k ha = 123 thousand hundred ares. ;)

    How do you abbreviate thousand? The word thousand has a few common abbreviations.

    The most common abbreviations for thousand are,

    • thous.

    When to Use This Abbreviation

    This abbreviation is only to be used in certain, non-academic writing. For the most part, the abbreviation “M” is used as in settings that deal with money and financing, such as bank and corporate accounting records. “K” is a more casual abbreviation.

    Using “M” as an abbreviation for thousand dates back to the Roman numeral system, where “M” was the symbol for thousand. It is still used in instances like CPM, or cost per thousand impressions.

    What is the correct abbreviation for thousands, millions, billions and trillions in a financial context?

    From what I have read online «In metric, you’d use M (mega) for million, G (giga) for billion and T (tera) for trillion.»

    I have seen and used M for million but that can represent thousands to some and mm is actually million..

    I also use ‘k’ for thousands; but i picked that up from playing runescape in 5th grade.

    Thousand, Million, Billion, Trillion What’s The Shorthand Or Abbreviation?

    Around WSO there seems to be a general consensus for what is considered the «correct» abbreviations:

    • K for Thousands
    • MM or M for Millions
    • B, Bn, Bil for Billions
    • T or Tn for Trillion

    Thousands is an interesting case because the Roman numeral system used M as their abbreviation. However, K originates from the Greek Kilo and is more commonly used today to minimize confusion. For million. billion, and trillion, their abbreviations are interchangeable so long as your are consistent in your usage. Add a comment if you think there is another way to shorthand or if we missed something!
