    <sup>MD </sup> (« marque déposée ») is quite often used in Canada to
    translate ®

    See SIGAL<sup>MD</sup> in and its English

    See RailRoader<sup>MD</Sup> in and its
    English translation

    I do not believe this is used in France.

    For TM, the recommended French abbreviation in Canada is <sup>MC</sup> («
    marque de commerce » ). Ideally the MD and MC should be in small caps.

    See and its English
