AddressFinder standardizes addresses based on United State Postal Office (USPS) standards. These standards include abbreviations such as 'ST' for "Street'. Some cities with longer names may also be abbreviated.

If you do not want to abbreviate the addresses, refer to How to not have abbreviations included with the AddressFinder update (BB130218).

For more information about USPS standards, refer to The Postal Addressing Standards Publication 28.
