200 Words: Some English Words are Controversial in China

When in China, watch your English, especially if you're using new milleneum terms like  MBA, VIP, GDP, CEO, Wifi, WTO and PM2.5 (the latter is a term used for air pollution). These are some of the most controversial English words in China, among others. Their issue: There's no Chinese translation for them.

Which makes me curious; how do you make abbreviations with Chinese characters?
