Is there any way to remap the keyboard to change the $ sign on the keyboard to a sign?

p.s. UK English spelling is generally the same as Canadian and Australian too.

UK English also require for spellings. Very annoying Swyping to get 'COLOUR' and it gives me 'COLOR'. After each reinstall, I need to retrain it with the correct spellings.
UK English (or International English) is used everywhere outside of the US. You have other European languages, so why not real English?

Really? I mean, you kinda had a point until the "real English" part totally discredited you as a bigot.

Except for the rather obvious point that "English" is the language spoken by the English people (they're the ones from England) and many of its past colonies and therefore is far more "real" than any other dialect or variation of the language spoken elsewhere, such as America. So, not a bigoted statement, just an accurate one.

Apart from the joking aspect, this is a valid enquiry surely? Is there any chance of a UK English flavour coming?!

Really keen for UK English too. Doesn't look very professional if I use US spellings in UK work!

Any further updates on UK English?

Personally, I'm from Australia, but obviously the UK english dictionary would suit me far better than US one.

There is UK english but I wish the pound sign would replace the dollar sign since I am using UK English.

Swyped...

When using the UK layout, it would be great if the UK Pound symbol () could appear in place of the US Dollar ($) above the "s" key, it makes sense.
