comment What does “where's waldo” mean in this context?
This isn't really about English usage. Where's Waldo is a children's pay book where they search an image for a peculiarly dressed character.

comment Is the English language used by the European institutions the British one?
The 'target audience' doesn't mean the only people who will read it. It's reasonable to make the target audience for English documents native British and Irish, while admitting that other nationalities my read the documents also.

@cipricus I know plenty of non-native English speakers whose English is better than the average English person.

comment Meanings of “in the sense that”
I'll be honest - I don't think "in the sense of" means "because". "Because" implies that what follows is the cause of the initial statement. I believe it indicates the correct interpretation of the initial statement.

comment Meanings of “in the sense that”
It's not that simple. You could write" "The team won, because they were better trained" but not "The team won, in the sense that they were better trained". "In the sense that" is not about causation, but interpretation.
