Template:Uw-lang

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Information.svg In a recent change to Wikipedia, you changed one or more words from one national type of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, please do not do that, even if you do not normally use the type of English the article is written in. Respect other people's versions of English. They in turn should respect yours.

For subjects related to Britain (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States, use American English. If it is a topic about another country or an international topic, use the same form of English the original author used.

Other guidelines on how Wikipedia articles should be written can be found in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. If you have any questions about all this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit "Simple talk". Thank you.
