English term or phrase: short nick name
"The error message 'Invalid format for short nick name' appears when printing a document. (Mac OS® X 10.5 – 10.6) ... If the printer driver is not installed correctly, this error occurs. You need to uninstall the printer drivers and reinstall them." I can't find this error msg in research and assumes it's something appearing in Mac OS. Anyone who knows?

ShortNickName is an entry in the ppd file (driver in this case) for your printer.

Asker: Takk! Det blir en veldig kontekstavhengig term, så jeg lukker saken, men takk for hjelpen; nå ser jeg hvordan termen er brukt :)

agree  Egil Presttun: ShortNickName bør nevnes i parentes.

agree  Kjetil Kiran: Antar man kan gi skriveren et kortere kallenavn i Os X, type "Hjemme", "Kontoret" etc. Denne beskjeden kommer sannsynligvis når et ugyldig tegn er brukt i dette kallenavnet.
