    hiya,

    i'm writing my CV and can't decide on the correct spelling of the word "traveling" or is it "travelling". Both seem to be acceptable in the Oxford and online dictionaries. Which is chiefly british?

    Cheers

    2 Ls are the British spelling, 1 L is the American English spelling. Both are equally correct. The important thing is that you are consistent.
