Courses on Simplified Technical English, Specification ASD-STE100 Training Courses for “SIMPLIFIED TECHNICAL ENGLISH, ASD-STE100” 

ASD-STE100 (or STE) is an international specification for the preparation of technical documentation in a controlled language. The STE specification is a copyright and trade mark of the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe , maintained, controlled, and distributed at no cost by the ASD Simplified Technical English Maintenance Group (STEMG). STE was developed in the early eighties (as AECMA Simplified English) to help users of English-language maintenance documentation to better understand what they read. It provides a set of Writing Rules and a Dictionary of controlled vocabulary. The Writing Rules cover aspects of grammar and style, while the Dictionary specifies the general words that can be used. These words were chosen for their simplicity and ease of recognition. In general, there is only one word for one meaning, and one part of speech for one word. In addition to the specified general vocabulary, STE accepts the use of company-specific or project-oriented words, provided that they fit into one of the categories listed in the STE specification.
