Description

Hello,

As a linguistic reviewer working for PayPal for Hungarian I came across "brit font" as the equivalent for "British pound."

I would recommend changing this to "angol font" for stylistic reasons.

The situation with this is the following:

The three main terms used for GBP are: "font sterling" (similarly to pound sterling), "angol font" and "brit font."

-Of these "font sterling" is the most formal and perhaps most official and is used mostly on formal occasions.
-"angol font" is the most natural and most widespread among Hungarian banks and currency exchanges as well as in everyday spoken language.
-"brit font" us also used but less often and mostly informally.

Supporting this with data:

1) Hungarian National Corpus (MNSZ)
hits for font sterling: 19
hits for angol font: 135
hits for "brit font: 12

2) Attached screenshots about the five Budapest-based currency exchanges and 3 banks. I haven't checked all possible banks and exchanges but of those I did all used "angol font."
