When you are writing or editing for a British company, it’s important to remember that some spelling rules change when you cross the Atlantic. To be safe, however, ask before you edit spellings, as some companies use a mixture of both!
|Dropped silent -e·|
|Included silent -e·|
These are just a few of the more common examples. When you need to know whether a word is British English or simply misspelled, try going to http://www.bbc.co.uk/. Just type your word into the search bar at the top, and if it appears in the results, you’re dealing with the Queen’s English.
