comment American and british english
Well, if you go by the spelling of organization, Greenpeace UK uses British English and Greenpeace USA uses American English. The point is that there is no single official or prestige dialect of English. Every locale has its own Standard English— Australian organisations will probably use Australian English, Jamaican organisations will use Jamaican English, and so on— and moreover, each organisation or publication is free to adopt its own preferred style.

comment How does the English word “arm” work?

NB: oriental is itself deprecated in North America. Asian is commonly used instead for East Asian people instead, and there is no separate word for people from the Indian subcontinent or other parts of Asia.
