Is there a reason why Trans Europa is listed as two words, while TransAmerica is listed as one word?

It just seems that the two games, being so closely related in theme, rules, style, designer, publisher, and such should have matching names as well.

But more importantly, it's screwing up the alphabeticality of my Collection.

Thanks.

My guess:

It appears from the box picture that Trans Europa is indeed two words. Looking at the TransAmerica box, it could go either way - one word or two. I don't have the game and so cannot comment on what the various rule sheets use for spelling.

In Rio Grande's Dealer Order Form, both TransAmerica and TransEuropa are listed as 1 word.

I guess based on that someone could submit a correction for Trans Europa
