    Hi and welcome!

    I realize that sometimes those who don't speak English as their primarly language find that abbreviations can get lost in translation. Here are a couple of links that I hope can help you out.

    If you mean general online abbreviations such as LOL, YMMV, AFAIK, etc.:
    Appendix:English internet slang - Wiktionary

    If you want nursing-related abbreviations:
    Note: some abbreviations can vary between specialities as well as between individual facilities.

    If you have a specific abbreviation that you want a translation for, tell us what it is and one of us will be happy to provide the info.
