Library maintainer rules & guidelines

G1.4 English language should be used throughout libraries

KiCad software is used by people who speak many different languages. The KiCad software provides translations for these languages, but the library files do not provide translations.

Library files should be written using English, excepting where specific component names are non-English (for non-English manufacturers).

Where potential differences in spelling and grammar exist, American English should be given preference.
