CLDR Ticket #10859(closed: as-designed)

Portuguese (pt_PT) doesn't have abbreviated forms for days name

Reported by: flodolo@… Owned by: fredrik
Component: datetime Data Locale: Portuguese (pt_PT)
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Currently, pt_PT uses wide day names also for abbreviated forms, both standalone and formatting.

For example, "sun" (Sunday, abbreviated-formatting)

It's "dom" for pt, "Domingo" for pt_PT. For comparison, month names have abbreviated forms

This was original reported as a bug in the datetime picker component in Firefox

Either delete or use the Mozilla names: "Seg", "Ter", "Qua", "Qui", "Sex", Sáb", "Dom".

Per our linguist:
The choice to use “segunda”, “terça”, “quarta”, etc., as the Abbreviated forms was a deliberate one as these are very common in software and “segunda” is much more recognisable than “seg”. Also note that these 3 letter abbreviations are already used in the Short format.

The issue is really in ICU so reported it there as http://bugs.icu-project.org/trac/ticket/13592

Being a native European Portuguese speaker I say your linguist is wrong, and it's obvious that on a calendar "segunda" isn't in any way more recognizable.
