This article describes the rules for units of measurement.
In general, use long text to display units of measurements, and do not use abbreviations, such as (ISO) codes.
Translate all units into the right language:
Use short text for common units like currency, weight, and length.
Format the numbers according to the rules of the corresponding control:
Use the object number control where technically possible as it offers a small font for displaying the unit. It also allows the numbers to be displayed in bold, for example, to highlight values on a table row.
Price per Quantity
If you want to show a price alongside the corresponding quantity in one string, use “/” instead of text. This makes translation easier.
