Have been working on creating the Style Guide and Standards and came up with
these questions. Any light/ links would be appreciated.

With companies and products being used across the globe, documentation needs
to meet the English vocabulary and style in sync with the ALL users spread
across - for the most part American and European.

1. How do you handle this requirement? Do you follow just one of the
standards (American/British English) - based on who the majority of users

2. Does anyone follow "Global English" standards?

3. I would also like to know if any online dictionaries are available for
Global English. (Have goggled a bit, but did not come up with any online

Have a great Wednesday!
