    On a business card card (designed for world-wide use) how would you abbreviate the following terms: Cell, Phone, Email in Portuguese?
    I just want to use one letter
    Example
    C: 123-456-7890
    T: 123-456-7890
    E: email address

    Welcome to the PT forum. :)

    I think we don't take it for granted, but I'd go with:
    cel:
    tel:
    e-mail:

    edit: nem tinha visto que o M tinha sido mais rápido.

    Yeah, but s/he wants to use one letter only.

    Does world-wise use comprise Africa? I'm afraid they don't use "celular" for "cell phone" as Brazilians do.

    Tlm:123-456-7890 (*)
    Tel: 123-456-7890
    e-mail: email@address

    (*) This one would spell trouble in world-wide use. It only works for Portugal (we say 'telemóvel', the Brazilians 'celular').
