Thanks for the support!

For future reference: I chose American English because, currently, Mass Effect uses a mix of US and UK spellings, even to the point of using multiple spellings for the same word! (I believe this is what's known as "Canadian English"). Since 70% of English speakers use AmE, which is often slightly more phonetic, that's the choice I went with.

All good mate it'd be dumb to ask you to redo the entire mod just to please the UK and us Aussies. Awesome work!

Amazing work!
Do you know if I have to install your mod before A.L.O.T., like all the other content mods?

I don't know. Someone will have to try it sometime; I have no experience with this as my hardware is too weak to handle the likes of MEUITM and a lot. However, the install/uninstall process is quite clean, so you should be able to try it after A.LOT without messing up anything...?

American English ?

There's only one English .
American is not it.
Though they are in the ballpark.

I'm not super duper bent out of shape about this, but the game was developed in Canada by Canadians, so it seems to me (as a Canadian) that following Canadian English standards would be the right thing to do!

AFAIK, Canadian English spellings are quite ill-defined, and this is shown in the multiple spellings of Mass Effect. At some point, I might be able to find a copy of the Canadian Oxford Dictionary, but I think a en-UK version would be a higher priority.
