Overview of Switches

The easyConverter Word command-line interface recognizes the American English as well as the International English spelling rules. For example: grayscale = greyscale, color = colour, optimize = optimise. In this documentation, we are going to use the American spelling, but feel free to use whichever you are comfortable with.
