The challenge

  • To make the technical publications become in compliance with ASD Simplified Technical English (ASD-STE100)
  • Better quality and readability of technical information to improve the service business

The results

For writers:

  • Approximate 81% reduction of grammatical errors and 90% reduction in Simplified Technical English errors.
  • Approximate 52% reduction in time to find Simplified Technical English and grammatical errors.

For Quality Assurance:

  • Approximate 48% reduction in time to review documents for grammatical and Simplified Technical English errors.
  • Approximate 25% increase in grammatical and Simplified English errors found in documents not scanned by HyperSTE.
