I'm researching if a "to do list" is a familiar term or concept to English speakers around the world.
I found this related question on how to spell to do. Specifically, Hugo's answer hints that to-do list may be familiar at least to the US and UK.
My specific scenario is explaining the idea of a "task" (for example, what Microsoft calls a task in their Outlook program). Would a to do list be an okay comparison for English speakers of various countries (the US, UK, Netherlands, and Japan could be the primary audiences)?
