comment PHPUnit: assert two arrays are equal, but order of elements not important
Fantastic. Why is this not the accepted answer, @koen?

comment Is written "Canadian English" closer to "American English" or "British English"?
One resource that made the decision firm in my mind is the comments at searchenginepeople.com/blog/…. It appears that 1. Not even Canadians agree on how to spell things, and 2. Full US English spellings are tolerated in Canada, and even often used by Canadians themselves. As an American (and not a Brit), it's much easier for me to use US English spellings, so it's kind of a slam dunk. For our needs, written US English is a better fit than written UK English for a Canadian market.

Also, can the downvoter shed some light on what's wrong with my question? I've been on the SO network for years, and as far as I can tell, the question is formulated appropriately for a SO site, and this seems to be the most appropriate SO site in the network. I'm eager to "fit in" here if my question was inappropriate somehow, please provide me with feedback.

@Josh61 - Please re-read the question - I am referring specifically to written English. And my concern is appealing to Canadians themselves, who certainly do know how they tend to spell words, what words they choose to use, etc. :)

Thanks for your response! Makes sense! The biggest catch is that I'd like to have the text come off feeling as "native" as possible. That's probably not 100% possible (given the two choices - UK and US), but it sounds like US might be "closer".

comment Translating database tables with gettext
FWIW, this is the approach I'm planning on using, unless I can find something better. Of course, like you've observed, you can't rely upon Poedit's "Update" functionality to find the strings to translate. You'll have to manually modify the .po/.pot file to include the strings or write a script to automatically do so (I'll likely do the latter).

comment Translating database tables with gettext
This would require running PHP's eval() on the results from the database, which (beyond being a very atypical solution) introduces a huge security risk. If an attacker can somehow find a way to modify the value of that field, she can execute whatever code she desires. In other words, she can change __('Germany'); to doSomethingTerrible();

comment Dry time between General Finishes waterborne stain and topcoat?
I forwarded this question on to General Finishes, and "Rob" responded with simply, "2 hrs dry in between coats." It's a little ambiguously worded (coats of what, exactly?), but given that it reflects what you've mentioned, I'm going to assume that generally speaking, 2 hours is the minimum time needed between applying the finish and my first coat of polyurethane.
