Australian English versus American English

I have been writing articles for both US and UK clients quite for a long time. Today one of my new customers asked me if I can write in Australian English. I was surprised to learn that there is a term called Australian English. I agreed to do the job for him and went on to research what this Australian English is all about.

As an Article writer you might have known the existence of British and American writing styles. Have you ever heard of Australian English? To my surprise there weren’t much explanation in the internet about the Australian English. However, I was able to browse through a few websites that provided me with a clue about Australian English.

At this juncture I would like to remind you that Australia too was under the British Empire. This gives you the clue that the so called Australian English is much closer to the British English. I found out that certain spellings and sentence structures and grammar were just like that of the British English. I am also in the process of creating a detailed article with examples of contemporary Australian English.

However, in my opinion, if you target global audience then the American is by far the best language suitable for websites. I will be posting the new article on ‘The difference between the Australian English and the American’ once I complete my research. Do keep visiting my blog and suggest articles on topics that you like to know about web content writing.
