Greetings! This whole discussion about British English vs. American
English brings up a question I have been mulling over for a while
now. I'm finishing my B.A. in Professional Writing and lately I have
been thinking more seriously about looking overseas for employment
after I graduate in June. I'm thinking specifically about Great
Britain or Australia.
Has anyone else done that--grown up an American citizen and then
spent a year or two working in another country as a tech writer?
What are some of the ramifications I might not immediately think of?
