    abbreviate v. [及物,常用於被動式]

    縮寫;將字或詞縮短,僅取其開頭的字母

    'Daniel' is often abbreviated to 'Dan'.

    'Chief Executive Officer' is abbreviated as 'CEO'.

    abbreviated adj.

    'Di' is the abbreviated form of 'Diane'.

    (from Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)

    所以,那句改成January is abbreviated to Jan. 應該比較好。
