The Fact: 國際標準化組織 ISO 的英文全稱

The Fact: 國際標準化組織簡稱為「ISO」,但是全稱是「International Organization for Standardization」

Why: 參見 ISO About us: it’s all in the name:

It’s all in the name

Because ‘International Organization for Standardization’ would have different acronyms in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), our founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal. Whatever the country, whatever the language, we are always ISO.

英文寫起來是「IOS」、法文是「OIN」,創辦人們覺得這樣不 equal,因此選用希臘文的「isos」->「ISO」來當作組織簡稱。
