Add Words to Style Guide / Spelling Reference #36
Add some terms that are commonly used in the docs to Content Style Guide & Spelling Only add terms where spelling is currently inconsistent or not obvious.
Current best choice in bold.
The most problematic question here (besides the question of one word, two words or hyphenated words, e.g. front-end) is captitalization, e.g. backend or Backend: In general, the trend is to write lowercase, even for specific technical terms, e.g. the internet, see The Verge: AP Style Guide will no longer capitalize internet. In the case of backend: menu is spelled lowercase, why should backend be capitalized?

Backend is a dictionary word, and not a name, so I would write it lowercase. When you say "logged in to the backend", it could be any backend, just as you can "log in to the online gaming platform". I would only use uppercase if I wanted to emphasize the (one and only) TYPO3 Backend.
See Slack for discussion on "site package or sitepackage". It has been decided now to use sitepackage. That's what was also originally used by Benjamin Kott in his early publications and used on sitepackage builder page.
Added PR for changing spelling of sitepackage:
