Today there are different forms of English languages : American English, English English, Simple English, Australian English, and others ...

I bet that in the future there will be also a European English language.

There are already some recommendations of the European parliament.

European software editors such as SAP use some specific European English words such as "vendors" for suppliers.

The guidelines to define European English language : - Closer to British English than American English. - Close to Basic English, Simple English - When possible, use synonyms than are closer to European Languages, especially latin languages (French, Spanish, Italian), but also German, or Dutch.
