Unless you write for a British audience, usage is to use international
English, which happens to be, most often, American English. Then, in some
fields, you might be required to use one or the other.

In 2005, the INTECOM published a "Guidelines for Writing English Language
Technical Documentation for an International Audience".

You can download it from here:

Hope this helps.
