Whose English Will I Be Writing In Today?
By Tad Hulse
When dabbling in the international freelance market, one question you will repeatedly be asking yourself is, "Whose English will I be writing in today?" Style, spelling and word usage can fluctuate enormously in the many variations of our ever evolving (or as some would say, transcending) language used around the world. There really is no secret in adapting to this alteration. It is as plain as day, and as an international writer, you will simply need to become bilingual in your mother tongue in order to cope.

is, of course, the tool of tools you can always rely on, your computer's
spell-check. Don't be
bottom line is simply that the living, breathing, insatiable creature
we call English is the basic tool
Good luck to you.

traveling the world.
