The Acronym Finder is a searchable database of more than abbreviations and acronyms about computers, technology, telecommunications, and the military. Over the years, the site has received numerous awards.
Acronym Finder is not a glossary of terms, web search engine, or dictionary or a thesaurus -- it is only designed to search for and expand acronyms and abbreviations. If you need more information about a word or other reference topic, they highly recommend TheFreeDictionary.com.
See Search Tips for information about using the site, including advanced search techniques.
If you don't find an acronym or abbreviation in the database, but know its meaning, you may suggest it be added here. If it meets their guidelines, it will be reviewed, verified, edited, and added to their database in their next update (usually several times a week).
