British vs American English

There are numerous spelling differences between British English (as spoken and written in the United Kingdom) and American English (as spoken and written in the United States), and, as stated elsewhere, we accept having a mix of British and American spelling on the site. The choice of British or American English for cases is up to contributor preference, however, please ensure you stick to the same for the entire case.

Radiopaedia now automatically attempts to show users the correct spelling. This is based on your browser language setting. Additionally, your user profile settings include a language preference which over-rides the browser language setting. 

Only a defined set of words will be translated and not all parts of the site will be affected.
