>>>>page 2 middle area- "vector, force and duration of G are all taken into account" should be vector, force, and duration of
G, are all taken into account.

That's American.  English is without the comma before the conjunction.  Your call, Dan!

>>>"Engine power, O2 reserve and fuel reserve" should be Engine power, O2 reserve, and fuel reserve,

Same again!

Americans do actually speak English, but so do Australiaians (no offence) with all their weird words.

No, Americans definitely speak American.  Why else would Americans need their own dictionary, thesaurus and style manual? ;-)

Aussies speak English.  English speak English.  

However, some Scottish can speak Scots (Gaelic) but Scots do not speak Scottish.

I totally agree with Simonpro, all 4 speak some form of English, however most words are almost the same. If I were to take a
trip to England, I would be able to understand almost perfectly.

Hello!

Some typos...

Concerning DOC:

inclinaison -> should be "inclination"
satelite -> should be "satellite"
other specific key - should be "other specific keys"
CLT+F -> should be (probably): CTRL+F (at "DGIV keyboard controls" )

Autopilot setting keys have a corresponding help text on the program display
should be:
"Autopilot setting keys have their corresponding help texts on the program display"

"example of help key text on autopilot display"
should be:
"example of a help key text on the autopilot display"

"They are CRUCIAL to successfully operating your craft."
should be:
"They are CRUCIAL to successful operation of your craft."
or
"They are CRUCIAL to operate your craft successfully."

Concerning DGIV:
- when an uMmu astronaut loses his breath after a tiring job (e.g running with a turbopack on Earth) the display says:
BreathLess -> should be "breathless" (or "Breathless")

If I find more, I'll let you know.

PS: There are also some typos in scenarios descriptions, the most noticeable being the names of scenario folders, I mean, there is :
Earth/Mars/Mission "scenary" while it should be "scenario" or "scenery"
