If you users are mainly foreigners, you should go beyond just not using it's. This is taught at school. Noun phrases such as the first window title bar should be replaced with the title bar of the first window. Also, sentences where verbs have the same spelling as the word (eg record) could lead to wrong interpretation. Anyhow, if you intend to sell abroad, be aware that: foreigners may have many reluctance with a non translated product; and there are countries where translation is a legal requisite.
Cheers to all, I didn't read this list for a long, so its a warm hug to Maggie S.
