I'm thinking about adding some localized strings to my app, however, the localized version of the string may be too long for a particular GUI that was designed for a short English word. The GUI is not a button or something that can be easily resized. Space is limited. If I can't fit a particular word into my GUI, would it be reasonable to somehow truncate or abbreviate the localized word? I don't know anything about abbreviating a foreign word. Or perhaps just leave it as English? Making the text smaller would just look crappy. I can't decide what to do.
