comment Software to change American punctuation to British
I didn't know what your proficiency is. To get the job done, it may turn out that the easiest thing (instead of spending time looking/googling for and evaluating tools), is to do it yourself real quick with a set of -simple- regexes.

Do you have any particular styles in mind to choose from?

comment Would it be weird if I write “a simple sample something”?
Proofreading/suggestions for readability are not the best fit here. Maybe writers.SE? Relevant to here, your sentence is perfectly grammatical, but yes, it sounds a little too alliterative for technical prose.

comment Does this feel like natural English?
You don't talk like while waiting for the bus, but the sentence length is totally appropriate for academic announcements of this type. Sounds -very- natural (in this context).

@Malvolio: What does 'tighten' mean? Beyond or more refined than just trimming...

comment Common words to avoid when writing formally
@kitukwyfer: The question moved so I didn't see comments til now... My answer is only descriptive. Other things being equal (if that is ever possible), the latinate phrasing will -be- more formal (I can't think of any pairs of romance derived/Germanic derived pairs where the Germanic one is more formal than the Latinate one. As to -quality-, that is, as you note, quite another thing entirely.
