Tag wiki excerpt:
Questions regarding the people one works with. This includes questions about communication, teamwork, or other issues caused by ones co-workers.
No tag wiki excerpt.
The meaning of coworker and colleague was discussed on ELL with the top answer stating that a coworker works at the same company, a colleague either at the same company or in the same profession / industry. But judging from the answers, not everyone quite agrees and it seems to be a subtle difference only.
When glancing through the questions, the words are used interchangeably (e. g. calling them colleague / coworker and tagging it coworker / colleague). Even colleague's tag wiki excerpt contains "co-worker".
This leads to two questions:
- Is this difference enough to warrant two distinct tags?
- (If yes) Have the differences been taken into account by OPs?
If not, the tag wiki excerpts should reflect that.
