I'm currently playing Metal Gear Solid 5, I'm a french speaker and I noticed characters use the word
Intel shorthand for
Intelligence I think.
I understand it as a synonym for
Information but I'm not sure it can be considered as a replacement for Information.
For example, I was chatting with someone and he said:
I will look into this issue.
and I wanted to express that if he needed more informations he could ask me so I was thinking about using this sentence :
If you need more intel, just ask me.
Do you think it's right ?
P.S. In french I'd translate
Information but in such context using
Information would have the same meaning and that's what made me think about it.
Thanks for helping.
