Standard Terminology

  • US English  ie  standardization not standardisation
  • Switch - not slider or toggle
  • Image - not Picture or photo
  • Name of cache or trackable - not title
  • Tap not click
  • Select not press
  • A switch is on or off, not enabled or disabled.
  • Screen, not page 
  • Back arrow
  • Press Hard rather than 3D Touch

I fixed all instances of toggle to switchand Title to Name. I assume Trackables have names and not titles. There were only uses of Images so nothing to fix. I left Favourite for Chris to handle.

Hey. We speak UK English in South Africa. :-)

My spell check will not pick up the non  US spelling so forgive me if I miss a few.

To activate 3D Touch is Press?

I use the terminology "hard press" because about 100% of non-technial users have never heard of 3D touch. They will understand pressing hard though.
