British Braille Formatting meets the standards set by the Braille Authority of the United Kingdom (BAUK). British braille sometimes makes different use of contractions, has different formatting rules, and normally does not indicate capital letters. (Though DBT can be configured to indicate them if and when required.)

British braille standards were updated in 2005. The Document: Translation Tables pull-out list can be used to pick a British table to follow either the old or updated rules.
