British-English Tips

If you are trying to adapt a campaign for UK markets, make sure the colloquial words are correct. For example, Americans for example say “mom” while English people say “mum”, Americans say “vacation” and English people say “holiday”. People will relate most strongly to designs that are in their “language.”

You can get more information on different English dialects from websites like the English Club. When researching new niches in the UK market keep in mind people living in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and England all speak English but they’ve got very distinct cultures, traditions, and terminologies!
