In English it's either e.g. or full words.  But they can at least be
short words - you can replace
	FOOs (e.g. BAR or BAZ)
with the phrase that's normally considered its standard translation:
	FOOs (such as BAR or BAZ)
or less formally:
	FOOs, like BAR or BAZ,

	FOO (i.e. BAR or BAZ)
translates as 
	FOO (that is, BAR or BAZ)
or perhaps something like
	FOO (meaning BAR or BAZ)
Ankh kak! (Ancient Egyptian blessing)
