UK or US Spelling – not all words should be “Briticised”
There are well-known differences between spelling in the US and UK/Australia – and there are some counties that try to confuse everyone by doing a combination of the two. In Australia, most people are aware of the -ize/-ise differences. And the “missing vowels”: -or/-our, ter-tre, e/ae, o/oe. Medical jargon is rife with them. Yet, these
Accuracy in Medical Transcription – A Point that can Save a Life
No one would dispute that accuracy in medical documentation is vital.
