As we all know, English is by far the most popular language in the world but there are several variants of the English language that differ usually in the way words are used to express the same subjects.

This package can be used to convert between the way the words are used in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.




The package US to UK Text Converter is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Convert English text between US and UK spellings

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This class can convert English text between US and UK spellings.

It can take a text using the UK English spelling and converts to the US spelling and vice-versa. It features:

- 20,000 words covered;
- Multiple sources for words like VarCon/ISpell (18,000 phrases) and WordsWorldWide (8,000 phrases), each lists have been used to cross-check each different, correct errors, and cast off duplicates.
- Variants for British phrases ('unrealisable' and 'unrealiseable');
- Does everyday expression checking with /bWORDb/, so, it will no longer corrupt phrases. "Ax" becomes "Axe", but "Axiomatic" will continue to be as "Axiomatic";
- Checks each phrase in the word list and its ucwords (higher-cased words) formatted model, so no acronyms may be negatively affected ("our group, AX, Avenger Xenophiles," will not be converted to "our group, AXE, Avenger Xenophiles");
- Atomic / Deterministic : American-ize/British-ify will not corrupt meaning ('discus' and 'diskus' have reverse meanings in US/UK, swapping them

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
