Butter Conversion US – UK

A lot of the recipes I use originate in America and I found the way they measure butter over there is different to how we do here in the UK.  The US measure in tablespoons and sticks, but I am familiar with ounces and grams.  I am not too sure how the rest of the world do it.  I wrote myself out a chart so when I am cooking I can easily convert from the recipe to what I can measure.
