Here’s what you’ll learn!

ASD-STE100 Simplified Technical English (STE) is a controlled language that is used to write technical manuals in such a way that they can be more easily understood by an international audience. STE helps to make translations cheaper and more accurate.

Our certified Simplified Technical English trainings are conducted by seasoned industry experts who work according to international standards, while having the flexibility to deal with your specific requirements. Our prefered STE trainings partner is Shufrans Techdocs.

“STE is a ‘way of life’ in the field of technical writing and documentation. The ASD-STE100 exercises covered a wide spectrum of topics from choosing between approved and non-approved words to recreating documentation in STE. Shumin expertly guides us from classroom learning mode to real-life practical application of STE rules. The materials that she presented were informative and very convincing.”
