Arbiter or Arbitrator?

Arbiter is the general term for someone who settles disputes, and especially someone authorized to do so, such as a judge. An arbitrator is someone who conducts an arbitration. (Use varies, though: in Scotland it is an arbiter who conducts arbitration.) The cliché is final or ultimate arbiter (not arbitrator).
