“England and America are two countries separated by a common language”, wrote George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950). It’s a sentiment as true today as in his lifetime, indeed probably more so. I like this treatment by the Valve Corporation in their games software’s user settings. ‘English (Traditional)’ is much better than ‘British English’, though I doubt many Americans will find favour with ‘English (Simplified)’ despite it being a very accurate description of how that nation has changed things.
