British English Language Packs

Comment 29th January 2015

Not a penny in licensing should be paid to Microsoft and other software producers from the public purse until we get a language pack for real English.

Why does this matter?

Even on this site, look all around and you'll see misplaced zeds and missing 'u's from people getting confused by the red squiggly lines telling them they're wrong.

It's about time we stopped having our language quashed from abroad and whilst it might be wrong to restrict sales of an software product that mis-spells everything the least we can do is stop government and schools paying for it until it's fixed.

If people choose to spell things wrong then that's up to them, but it's offensive for companies to not even create a product (which kids learn from) in your language  then ask for payment.
