What is it?

Simplified Technical English is a controlled language used in the aerospace industry since 1986. The European & American Aerospace Industry Associations devised the language to improve the readability of maintenance documentation.

Why Simplified Technical English?

Documents in STE are:

  • Easier to read because the language is less complex
  • Unambiguous because words have a single and consistent meaning
  • Consistent, especially where there are a number of authors
  • Easier to translate
  • Easier to use in different formats because the language is concise and precise

Who should attend this course?

This course is a practical introduction for those who will use Simplified Technical English (formerly AECMA Simplified English). The course introduces the philosophy of Simplified Technical English, explains the underlying grammatical principles and gives delegates opportunities to use STE in practical exercises.
