    Default What is SpanishUS?

    Hi,

    I would like to know the rules of the Spanish US target language flavor?

    I know that for example the capital letters need to be respected, and the punctuation rules are the same as in english.

    What bout the dates? Should they be in Spanish format, or english?

    Hi Nabylm.

    Some time ago, I found something about "La Academia Norteamericana de la Lengua Espaņola", check this link, look that they had something related to what you are looking.

    ANLE

    The truth is that I did not find much difference, but with respect to the dates I think they take the same format of English


    Maybe someone us help.

    Exactly, dates remain in English format. Also, I think capital letters mirror the english source, as opposed to the RAE rule. Is that right?

    Exactly, capital letters remain as they are in English. Just like punctuations in numbers.

    Are there other rules for such flavour Maximiliano? Or is it mainly preferential, depending on each client or target audience? Also, what about "anglicisms" , are they accepted?

    I'd say that some anglicisms may be well received by the audience, but I wouldn't encourage them.

    Spanish US does not actually exist in any book, so, as you say, we should always take into account the target audience.
