Frequently Asked Questions

Are you serious?

Reasonably so. Seeing 'Trash' too often sent me over the edge.

Why isn't this a mo/po file?

Since en_GB is quite similar to en_US, it would be rather unnecessary to use full string translations that may require updating for each version.

Using -ize isn't an Americanism

While I'm aware of this, I loathe Oxford spelling with a passion.
