This question already has an answer here:
Is there a word for the case where a number has been converted to something with a trailing ‘K’ (and possibly ‘M’ for millions, ‘B’ for billions, ...)?
Example: 250,000 changes to 250K
It will be used in a sentence like “The number is ...”, like hyphenated and capitalized are used in “The word is hyphenated” and “The character is capitalized”.
Context: I’m programming a set of functions to deal with character and number formatting. For most of those functions, the name is simple and obvious:
trim(). Until now, I’ve used
number_shorten(), which is not very descriptive, and someone reading my code would have to guess what it actually does, and therefore I’m looking for a better word to describe my function.
