Longtime UI spelling error "Centre"
Why is it that for many years now the spelling of "Centre" (as in: Centre Justify) has not yet been fixed in the Windows versions of InDesign? The MacOS versions are correct.
"Centre" is "re" when used in "Shopping Centre".
Center is "er" when used in the middle of something, such as Alignment.
All of your other products properly use "Center" ... but, for whatever reason, InDesign (including the latest CC 2020) for Windows has failed to fix this.
Please keep in mind that it's fixed on the MacOS versions. Thus, it MUST be considered an inconsistency and a bug.
Please, please, please... fix this TINY problem. It's SO easy to fix!
P.S. Please note that this is not the first time I have logged this bug. I did so years ago. So, I DO apologise for this duplication... but... come-on... just fix it already!
Closing this issue.

Thanks for the quick reply, Ravi. :)
I admit, I had not considered that the reason might be International English vs. U.S. English. I *should* have thought of that... as I'm Canadian and am used to dealing with differences in spelling.
Myself (and honestly, I just thought this was universal), I've always spelled 'centre' and 'center' two different ways, depending on whether I was referring to a building or town centre, etc. vs. the middle of a circle.
I am VERY impressed to see Colour spelled with a U in my InDesign... :) I hadn't expected that! :)
However, I'm still on the fence about 'centre'. Illustrator and Acrobat use 'center'. It's only InDesign that I have seen to use the 're' spelling.
Interestingly ... my MacOS is set to British English, as is my Windows 10: but InDesign on MacOS is showing U.S. spellings of 'center' and 'color'.
All very confusing. But I might add: all very IMPRESSIVE that Adobe would even consider offering different spellings based on the region. I'm just not clear on 'how' to set or choose whether it's going to display in U.S. or U.K. English (it doesn't seem to change when I change my Regional settings).
Either way... interesting. :) Curious, though, why all other (all?) Adobe apps don't do this.
