comment How to say plural of abbreviations

comment How to correctly translate “Upload a track” from English?
Whether people do or do not make a careful distinction between cargar and descargar depends mostly on the habits of the speaker. As in English, with the distinction between download and upload. Some people "download" photos from their phone to their gallery, while others "upload" them.

La diferencia entre lo que dice Diego y lo que dice @clinch se asemeja a la diferencia entre un homomorfismo y un isomorfismo. Esto es un poco abstracto, pero es la misma idea.
