Units of Distance or Length.
When we talk about units of measure, one of the first that come to mind are the units of distance or length. In everyday life we use them with great frequency, and sometimes without realizing, by the natural and common use.
But the need to know when it comes to speaking, listening, reading or writing in another language, appears very quickly because it is difficult to convey with synonyms, graphics, etc.
In addition, and to the time difference, where the units of measurement are the same for all countries, in the case of all other units of measure exist the aggravating circumstance of the existence of three different systems of units of measurement: what we call the Decimal Metric System, Imperial System of Measures and the US Customary Measurement System.
Although at international level there is some controversy regarding the advisability of using a single system, on our website we will not get to question the use of one or another system. Simply we see the basic units of measurement of the three systems in the case of Length or Distance, the Mass or Weight and Volume.
As with the Time, we’ll do it using tables, and only make additional observations which may be necessary. Nor will try of define them equivalences, and only work with the translation of the units of distance.

Fortunately, and thanks to agreements between the institutions that give guidelines on Measurement Systems, abbreviations of the units in both systems are the same. As a result, we always have the option, at least when writing, using symbols commonly in both languages.
