To ‘Standardise’, Or Not To ‘Standardize’, That Is The Question…

Most of you will not be surprised to know that, by instinct, and thanks to good teaching, I usually choose to write, and to spell, in British English. For those of you who enjoy writing, and especially for those who are avid readers. I have a two-part question.

When I write an article, which includes a quotation from an American source, should I ‘standardise’ the American spelling, to match British spelling, or leave the quotation unchanged? Secondly, regardless of which you believe to be correct, I would also like to ask, which do you prefer — to ‘standardise’, or not to ‘standardize’, that is the question…

Thank you for taking the time to think about this with me. I look forward to learning from you all, and to implementing the writing style, which is recommended, provided that there is a clear ‘favourite’, or ‘favorite’.
