Abbreviation PL for Place ?

Postby de_denis » Sat Feb 27, 2016 2:03 am

I often see the Pl abbreviation for a Place. This abbreviation is take in charge by the TTS. According to our rules, we have to use Post Canada abbreviation's, so using Place and not Pl. Is that correct ? (for the french side)

Wow! I never noticed that.

Waze guidance says don't use "Place" but use "Pl": https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Canada#Abbreviations

Canada Post says use Pl in English but Place in French: https://www.canadapost.ca/tools/pg/manu ... sp#1437339

Est-ce que les voix françaises disent "place' pour "Pl" dans Waze?

Is Pl prnounce "Place" by TTS?
If yes we should use PL, if it isn't we should report this and for the time being use Place.

Yes Pl is good delivered by the TTS. Pl is provide by the French version in France where use this abbreviation.
We have to update the Wiki with this, just take off the (english) and notice this exeption with post canada
