British English

British English is the standard dialect of the English language as spoken and written in the United Kingdom. There is a meaningful degree of uniformity in written English within the United Kingdom. However, variations exist in formal, written English too. The forms of spoken English vary considerably more than in other areas of the world where English is the official language.

The United Kingdom has a rich landscape of regional accents and dialects that vary amongst England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the four countries of the United Kingdom. These dialects and accents also vary within these countries. The principal divisions of British English accents are classified as:

  • English English (spoken in England, and encompassing Southern English dialects, West Country dialects, East and West Midland dialects and Northern English dialects)
  • Ulster English (spoken in Northern Ireland)
  • Welsh English (as spoken in Wales, and not to be confused with the Welsh language)
  • Scottish English (as spoken in Scotland and not to be confused with the Scots language)

Choosing between a Scottish or Southern English accent will depend on the degree of localization you desire for your project. We recommend the standard variety for global projects that need to appeal to a broad audience.
