The latter!

Anyhow, - you have given me an idea - I could maybe make the dialog changer kind of two tier, where you can select to only chang spelling differeences like ' lazer to laser', and change american terms like ' parking lot' on a seperate option. That way people could have the option of only fixing spelling diffferences but leave the main feeling of the dialog intact, ie still american for something that is obviously based in america.... I'll have to think about it.
That sounds like a good idea. "laser", however, is an acronym (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) and should never be spelled in any other way .
