Biweekly

Biweekly means either occurring every two weeks, or occurring twice every week.[1][2] This causes ambiguity when the term is used. As a result, in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, the term fortnightly is more commonly used for an event that occurs every two weeks.

In the US, a biweekly publication is issued every two weeks and a bimonthly publication is issued every two months.
