Europejska Karta Ubezpieczenia Zdrowotnego

Europejska Karta {f} Ubezpieczenia Zdrowotnego <EKUZ> = Europäische Krankenversicherungskarte {f} <EHIC> [in Austria: <EKVK>] = European Health Insurance Card <EHIC>

The translation is as straightforward as it gets, of course; the main point of this entry is to highlight the fact that “German German” tends to use the English acronym EHIC, while Polish uses one based on the Polish term (EKUZ), and “Austrian German” likewise prefers the acronym EKVK.

A specimen of what is beautifully referred to as Frequenz-Austriazismus. 🙂
