This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Biweekly would also work, but there can be some ambiguity over whether you mean twice a week, or every two weeks. – Sam Feb 23 '12 at 14:21
You can use 'two-week' word. Eventually 'semiweekly'. – kenorb Aug 19 '14 at 14:56
@kenorb "semiweekly" would pretty much unambiguously mean "twice a week". – Joe Z. Aug 19 '14 at 15:31

Fortnightly: Happening every two weeks.

Biweekly, as you can see at the Cambridge online dictionary.

I was pretty sure biweekly meant "twice a week". – rds Feb 23 '12 at 14:42
Generally all these prefixes have some ambiguity to them. "Bi-annual" can mean either "semiannual" (once every half-year, or twice every year) or "biennial" (once every two years). – Joe Z. Aug 19 '14 at 15:29
