I remember reading that one of the few edits done to the "Harry Potter" series for American release was to change the word "jumper" to "sweater".  In the US,  a jumper is a dress, like this:

and we'd have gotten a rather strange image of Harry or Ron as they were unpacking their school clothes had they not changed itWink  But in the UK, all sweaters are called jumpers, yes?
