Do a google search for "object orientated". You won't find it. Google will instead 
ask, "Did you mean: object oriented" and give you a bunch of pointers to "object 
oriented" programming. It may not be, "proper English" but it is the correct 
terminology. (Whether or not it is an "Americanization".)
