    Brittish/American spelling

    I have a couple of questions concerning Brittish vs American spelling;

    summarize or summarise: is the -is-form the correct Brittish spelling, or does it matter?

    vulcanization or vulcanisation (or maybe curing?): which is the correct Brittish spelling? (it is a term within rubber manufacturing)

    Your help is appreciated!

    Ankawik,

    American spelling would be 'vulcanization', 'summarize', and 'sulphur'.

    Cheers,
