Greetings Everyone!

I'm new here and wanted to say hello. I only speak English and want to help out with transcribing (I can also proofread if it's needed).

Just one quick question: When transcribing should we use American or UK English? Should it be color or colour or does it not matter?

Look forward to getting to know you all!

Hey, welcome to the team !

About the locale for transcription, the logical thing would be to use the spelling corresponding to the speaker's locale, and most of the speakers in our materials use American English, so we don't ask ourselves the question too often.

I'd recommend reading these guidelines in our wiki, to find more answers.
