Disable Oxford British English (-ize)

Hi there, I am a new LanguageTool user and cannot find the option to disable use of Oxford British English. Is there any way to switch this off and use only the -ise, -isation endings?
Thanks for any help.

Hi @Paul1, welcome to the LT forum! :slight_smile:

Unfortunately, we do not have an option in the settings (yet) to deactivate the Oxford spelling rules all at once.

You can quickly get rid of the Oxford rules anyway. You know how, when you click on an LT error, you have the option to deactivate the rule?

There are four Oxford rules (for nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs). Once you deactivate all four of them, you’re all set. Just deactivate the rules triggered by: organisation, organise, organisational, organisationally.

Sorry that there is no easier way of doing this right now, we will implement a more user-friendly option soon :wink:

OK, thanks for the speedy reply :grinning:
