I suggest you ...

English (UK) thesaurus and dictionaries please!

Please, please, please note...

The time we save in spinning text, is then lost again due to the need to spell check for US spelling mistakes!

Examples:-

Here are the main ways in which British and American spelling are different.

Words ending in –re
British English words that end in -re often end in -er in American English:

British US
centre center
fibre fiber
litre liter
theatre theater or theatre

Words ending in -our
British English words ending in -our usually end in -or in American English:

British US
colour color
flavour flavor
humour humor
labour labor
neighbour neighbor

Words ending in -ize or -ise
Verbs in British English that can be spelled with either -ize or -ise at the end are always spelled with -ize at the end in American English:

British US
apologize or apologise apologize
organize or organise organize
recognize or recognise recognize

Words ending in -yse
Verbs in British English that end in -yse are always spelled -yze in American English:

British US

Words ending in a vowel plus l
In British spelling, verbs ending in a vowel plus l double the l when adding endings that begin with a vowel. In American English, the l is not doubled:

British US

fuelled fueled
fuelling fueling

Words spelled with double vowels
British English words that are spelled with the double vowels ae or oe are just spelled with an e in American English:

British US

Note that in American English, certain terms, such as archaeology, keep the ae spelling as standard, although the spelling with just the e (i.e. archeology) is usually acceptable as well.

Nouns ending with –ence
Some nouns that end with -ence in British English are spelled -ense in American English:

British US
defence defense
licence license
offence offense
pretence pretense

Nouns ending with –ogue
Some nouns that end with -ogue in British English end with either -og or -oguein American English:

        I know this is a cludge fix, but we are introducing a function that will allow automated spin cleaning and automated search and replace. This can be run manually or after a global spin. In this function, you can add common US words and have them repalced with British words. This is not optimal as you would manually need to add lots of words, but the beauty of this is that you can leverage off the existing large US synonym dictionary.
