I read a text in French related to honorary consular.

First of all, it states Consuls honoraires-C0.0. and COA.

What is meant with C0.0. and COA ? Are these abbreviations?

  • @grouah I have edited my question, including where C0.0 and COA appear. Do you have an idea what these represent?

  • The COA thing, for what it's worth, is an internal filing/reference number for the letter (so you can refer to it instead of referring to, say "your letter dated dd/mm/yyyy").

What is meant with C0.0. and COA ?

The consul knows...

Are these abbreviations?

Likely, and not common ones.

How would this part be translated in English?

Votre and vos means "your", du means "of", nos means "our". The other words are essentially the same between French and English.

  • So we would say your communication between your references our references?
