Numeronym

What is a numeronym?

A numeronym is a number-based word often used as an abbreviation to simplify long and often clunky technical terms. L10n is a numeronym; the 10 refers to the number of characters between the letters l and n in the expanded word – localization.

i18n (internationalization) and g11n (globalization) are other examples of numeronyms widely used within the localization industry.
