Frequent Contributor

Description: The punctuation in "EE.UU" is wrong according to the current punctuation rules for Spanish.
Language: esES

Steps: Launch Skype > Go to Settings > Scroll down and select the country dropdown list.
OS: Windows 10
Build: 12.1813.286.0
Current translation: Islas menores alejadas de los EE.UU.
Suggested translation: Islas menores alejadas de los EE. UU.
Reason: The current guidelines from the RAE state that acronyms should have a space after each point. This seems inconsistent in MS termbase (some are correct, some are not).
English source: U.S. Outlying Islands / US Minor Outlying Islands (not sure what the exact source is)
