===Language usage and word choice===
+
 
+
To facilitate future translations avoid the following:
+
 
+
* Contractions- for example, in place of ''don't'' or ''can't'' or ''won't'' use do not, cannot, or will not.
+
* Function instead of service name- use "web search" instead of "Google search"
+
 
+
===Some special characters===

This is a helpful spot to facilitate a copy/paste of these unique characters:

* [http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_Prime E Prime] - would likely reduce the challenge to translations.
