|Author: R. Strucel. This reference was created for Globalrph to help translate occasional texting codes that appear sporadically in correspondence from friends, colleagues, and other professionals. At least once a month I receive messages from younger professionals that are difficult to decipher based on the presence of several texting shorthand abbreviations. I had the author create two separate versions. The primary version simply lists the acronym followed by the definition. The alternative version lists the phrase / translation first and the texting code that represents the phrase.
