Language

  • American-English is different from British- English. Be prepared for misunderstandings and try to avoid them.
  • In the presence of Americans, always use the English language, also when you ‘just have a little conversation’ with fellow Dutchmen.
  • When you use temperatures or sizes in documents, always use American inches, feet and Fahrenheit, so don’t use the metrical system.
  • Make sure your website is accessible in the American-English language. Do not only use a Union Jack as a languages button, but also the Stars and Stripes.
