Old[edit]

Official name is ING, uppercase. it is not an abbreviation.

  • According to this [1], it says this. Isn't it an abbr?
  • I was just about to make the same point about this (annoyingly-long-urled) page. Seems we're in agreement, it most certainly is. -- John Owens 08:05 21 May 2003 (UTC)
  • from the above-mentioned ling, please refer to: "The company followed suit by changing the statutory name to 'ING Groep N.V.'" Christopher Mahan 08:16 21 May 2003 (UTC)
    • And it says right there in the article, "officially ING Groep N.V., once stood for Internationale Nederlanden Group.". I don't see the problem. -- John Owens 08:21 21 May 2003 (UTC)
      • ING seems a little vague. Internationale Nederlanden Group sounds better. and if you don't like that, then wouldn't this material be under ING Groep N.V.? --Poor Yorick
        • granted, but who is going to link to that, search by that, or wiki to that? It'll be hard enought getting people ta cap it all... Christopher Mahan 08:26 21 May 2003 (UTC)
  • We can redirect it all to the Internationale Nederlanden Group page, I guess --Poor Yorick
  • I have emailed their press room for their input. Will keep you posted. Christopher Mahan 08:37 21 May 2003 (UTC)
    • Didn't get anything back from them. They can either stay here or go to ING Groep NV. Any opinion?

ING exists in India as well, in collaboration with Vysya Bank. It is called ING Vysya.. shouldnt this be mentioned as well?

Offices in...[edit]

The list of countries ING has offices in seems to be largely incomplete. India is missing (see the previous comment), as well as the Czech Republic (ING's office is right across the street from me); no doubt there are plenty of other countries where ING has an office of some sort. I would suggest to delete the list and replace it with something generic such as "ING has offices in n countries" or, more poetically "ING has offices on five continents." --Netvor » user | talk | mail | work » 10:52, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

My recent reverts[edit]

I reverted a verson that had the following "In Mexico they feature Dutchy does their clients!" as it made no sense. If it is a useful comment can someone translate it into English, and pop it back in. Ta. LeeG 23:31, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Intelligent Go Foundation not abbreviated Ing?[edit]

As far as I can tell, the Ing Foundation was named for Ing Chang-Ki, and is not an abbreviation for Intelligent Go Foundation. There is an Intelligent Go Foundation with goals to make advances in playing go by computers. Their website uses the abbreviation "IGF," not "Ing." It appears to be a separate entity from the Ing Foundation. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 206.53.197.12 (talk) 00:27:12, August 19, 2007 (UTC)

Style?[edit]

Is it the current style on disambiguation pages to say "anthroponyms" instead of "People" and "toponyms" instead of places, or did a editor feel like showing off? Which would more readers of Wikipedia understand? SlowJog (talk) 15:26, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Scope of Personal Title Abbreviation[edit]

Based on some limited correpondence, Ing. as a personal title such as Dr. or Prof. seem to apply more generally than the "doctor of engineering" described. For example, it seems to be quite common in Italy and Spanish-speaking countries even when refering to the holder of a bachelors/technical degree, and not just those with a masters or doctorate degree.

Is anyone familiar enough to comment further? 66.193.122.3 (talk) 22:30, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Ing. is also academic title before name (technical sciences) used commonly in Czech Republic or Slovakia. Its meaning is "Engineer". --Mykhal (talk) 19:43, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
