This size is usually confused with the American legal-size bond paper which is 8.5" x 14". So, if you're a student, a teacher or an employee, be careful with setting-up the size of the bond paper especially when printing documents that occupy long-size bond paper.

Deberían corregir el nombre y hacerlo con el nombre técnico, para que se ajuste a la familia del ‘formato americano’ (del continente de América). El papel tamaño 8½" x 13" se llama de dos formas: 1) government legal, 2) oficio (América Latina). Como en Filipinas tienen el idioma filipino deberían adoptar la palabra ‘oficio’, y para el tamaño 8½" x 14" el nombre técnico seguería siendo ‘legal’. Este procedimiento facilita la exportacióny comercialización de este papel en Filipinas y también a otros lugares, y se ajustaría a un concepto técnico, reconocido por muchos en el mundo.

1) Paper 8½" x 13" size: Oficio.
2) Paper 8½" x 14" size: Legal.
3) Paper 8½" x 5½ " size: Half letter.

Bueno que Filipinas tenga su característica propia de medidas, que lo diferencien del resto de Asia; eso forma parte de su propia identidad.

En este caso, Filipinas universaliza y da forma al grupo de medidas de papel de América (continente), en contraposición del formato DIN.

Filipinas pertenece a la gran familia de papel ‘Formato Americano.

El ‘formato de papel americano‘, no es solo de EEUU, sino que pertenece a todo el continente de América, lo cual no es una representación de colonialismo, sino de identidad propia.

El nombre de ‘oficio‘ no es de EEUU, sino de América Latina.

Saludos al pueblo de Filipinas desde Colombia.
