Have any American readers out there had experience creating training or
documentation for non-American, English-speaking audiences (e.g.
Canadians, Britons, Australians)? I'm curious about how such audiences
perceive the materials we create differently, conventions common here that
aren't familiar elsewhere, and any research that might have bearing on
this "same-language translation" subject.

Any observations from people conducting these translations in reverse
(Brits writing for Americans, for example) would also be welcome.

Please respond either to the list, or to me directly:

Thanks in advance...
