Knowledge base

American or British?

Americans and Britons use different words and expressions that occasionally cause misunderstandings. To illustrate this,  the differences between British and American English have been compiled in a knowledge base. This knowledge base contains several terminology lists with elaborate background information. The information is periodically updated and is part of the continuing education program that is compulsory for certified translators.

The database contains over 5200 words that are translated differently in American and British. It also contains a list of around 700 words that occur in both American and British English and have different meanings there. It also contains important differences in spelling and grammar.
