#21963 new enhancement

Spelling of "center" and other words with differences in AE vs. BE

Description (last modified by skyper)

In #21907, I noticed that we use BE instead of AE for e.g. "center".
We have en_GB (UK) for British spelling but as far as I know the default in JOSM is American English.
Is it ok to change to AE for the gui language or are there reasons for the use of mixed spelling?

I'm OK with this. But we'll probably want to do it after we release 22.03, just to give translators some time. Unless we are able to set the current translations as equivalent anyway. I really haven't played around with our translation system, so I don't know how well it deals with minor changes to text (i.e., do translators have to retranslate a whole string when a typo is fixed?) I would hope that it sets the current translation as "fuzzy", but I don't know.

Sure, I planned to change centre to center together with #21907 and #21964.
Are there more words to look at?

Replying to skyper:

So far I found "Neighbourhood" and "Theatre" beside many "Centre".
