    y'a t-il une abbréviation équivalente en français pour « pièce »?
    Ou toute autre manière de raccourcir:

    Ensemble de 10 pièces pour salle de classe

    Hello Zingapuro,

    It depends on the product. You can use "item", which can be abbreviated to "I". It is often omitted so "pièce" would not need to be translated.

    "memory sticks - pack of 10"
    "pencils - wallet of 20"
    "document wallets (cardboard folders) - pack of 50"
    "transparent peel off paint. Set of 12: orange, yellow, cherry red [...]".

    These examples are from a current English catalogue. I hope they help.

    Hi pyan,

    Thanks for answering. Reading your answer, and re-rereading my question, I realize I wasn't very clear at all about which language I needed!
    The source is English and states "10 pc Classroom Set"

    My question is how to write this in French, and whether it's possible to abbreviate "pièce" in the same way it's done in English.

    "10 pcs", ça reste compréhensible.
    Dans un contexte pro, on utilisera sans doute "10 u." pour unités ou "10 p." pour pièces.
    Si restriction d'espace, ensemble peut devenir lot.
