Hello there creative nation! I hope you all are doing awesome.

This is a quick suggestion / tip for all those authors which English is not their native language. After purchasing more than 600 files and counting, I’ve seen some help files with non proper English (American) grammar. This is hard sometimes, specially when documentation is very important (like templates from TF, for example).

If there is any author that needs help correcting or checking our proper English grammar before uploading / submitting their files for approval, hit me up (send me an email) and I will be more than happy to take a look and suggest corrections if needed.

Use my profile to contact me.

Have a good day!

Gotta admit I giggled at this part… cuz obviously only American grammar could be the correct one! Probably not what you had in mind, but it’s what popped into mine ^^

I believe most non native English speakers will have problems using Present Perfect/Past Perfect, or worse, arrange the words in a sentence as would sound natural in the native language. Hope you haven’t seen any such problems in my items :)

It largely depends on which countries people are from, or perhaps more which languages speak. For instance, the English level is far higher in Scandinavia (I’ve been told by a Japanese friend (a country that truly struggles with learning English) that Denmark has the highest level of English as a second language), than say, Germany. The reason is that none of the Scandinavian languages are well known internationally, whereas German somewhat is. So for Scandinavians, there’s truly a need to learn a second or third (heck, when I went to high school I had a total of 5 different languages) language, whereas Germans can many times just get by with speaking their own language.

Sidetracking a bit there…
