Organize/Organise

Share:

District 6 of London offers a job called Organize A Raid On The gang Hideout. It’s the one that produces Microchips. At first glance there doesn’t appear to be anything unusual about it.

When you examine the “Do Job” button, you will noticed that the spelling of Organise is in UK English. This is fine since London is in England.

Now comes the Zynga part. If you read the job description, the word is spelled Organize. If they are going to deviate from American English spelling in the game then they should at least be consistent about it!
organise1 Thanks to Brandon Venery for pointing out this inconsistency. I did notice the job button right away but not the fact that it was spelled different in the description.

LOL, fixed. The difference is I'm not getting paid the big bucks and shouldn't be expected to be typo free :)

Or better still Americans could stop changing the spelling of words. The language is called English for a reason ;-)

is not a typo, it's just not consistent, that makes me think that Zynga has British English speaking and US English speaking in the designer team and neither would pick up the "typo", as both is correct.
On the other hand you could have people who can't spell and made a typo in their own spelling. Whatever it is, if that were the only problems, we'd be smiling to the bank.

are the game title and action button both machine translated in the other languages? or just the game title? that may be the reason for the American spelling... it would be cheaper to keep the same base language for the MT engine.

That's why it is no longer American English, it is now called American Slanglish
