I have worked in the IT (Information Technology) industry in Germany for over 15 years. I have always heard the acronym "IT" pronounced as in English [
eye-tee], even when speaking in German.
My daughter is now in an "IT Grundkurs" at school and the teacher pronounces it with the German pronunciation [
Has anyone ever heard the German pronunciation of IT actually used?
Is there any definitive source where I could "prove" that the English pronunciation is standard, e.g. is there some kind of German linguistic association (such as in France the Académie française) which decides which pronunciation and spelling of even borrowed words is standard?
