Americanization/Anglicisation

American Pie is the only company in the world created for the specific purpose of translating in either direction between British and American texts. We handle all types of material ranging from press releases and house journals to engineering manuals and even cookbooks.

Examples of our work include tourist advertising for the State of Florida and Avis Rent-a-Car, nutritional documentation, and machine tool and medical imaging equipment manuals. We even anglicise/americanize childrens' books.

British and American English are slowly but surely becoming more and more distinct. The differences are no longer limited to different spellings of the same word. Whole writing styles need to be adjusted for the different audiences on each side of the Atlantic and elsewhere in the English-speaking world.

Since 1973, when the United Kingdom and the Irish Republic joined the European Economic Community, a series of far-reaching changes has occurred to weights and measures, the law and many other aspects of life in the British Isles, separating them even further from their counterparts in the United States.

Furthermore, the US is now the only country in the world that does not routinely use metric measurements. Any text which includes any reference to measurements should be reviewed to see if different British and American versions are required. This ranges from cook books to scientific text books.

For a modest initial fee, we will review any text submitted to us, prepare a report on the need for different versions and give a quotation for the necessary work.
