Training solutions

Shufra offers a range of customised ASD-STE100 training solutions that will help you expand your knowledge of the fundamental principles of documentation management. Through interactive workshops and exercises, your technical publication and writing team will learn how to standardise content and structure to:

  • Author efficiently
  • Facilitate information exchange
  • Improve overall text readability
  • Publish in multiple channels
  • Reduce maintenance costs for technical information

Our Simplified Technical English training workshops are conducted by seasoned industry experts who work according to international standards, while having the flexibility to deal with your specific requirements. Of course, our ASD-STE100 training supports the current version of the ASD-STE100 specification, Issue 6, January 2013.

We offer the following STE training programmes:

  • Customised training workshops conducted on-site
  • Open STE training classes on a per-seat basis. Ideal for small and medium-sized companies.

The principal trainer is Ms. Shumin Chen who has helped many companies with their STE and other documentation needs, based on standards where possible. Although STE was developed for the aerospace industry, more specifically for aircraft maintenance documentation, Ms Chen found that it made a lot of sense to apply the same principles to other industries and types of documents as well. Few -if any- changes to the specification are necessary to adapt STE to industries ranging from machinery to IT, automotive to medical equipment.

Ms. Chen received her professional on-the-job training in the field of STE under the tutelage of Dr Frans Wijma, a linguist, documentation expert and private pilot who has been in the field of controlled language, multilingual documentation and aerospace & defense standards for 15 years, working with customers worldwide. STE classes taught include Boeing, BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, EADS, Eurocopter, FAA, RAF, Philips, Fluke, Watchguard, Elekta, Hach, Tellabs, Omron and Kubota.

Dr. Wijma and Ms. Chen are regarded as the leading experts in Simplified Technical English (STE) implementation. They received very professional positive feedback and references are available on request.

We use the latest version of the ASD-STE100 specification: Issue 6, January 2013.

We also offer training in S1000D, S2000M, ATA iSpec 2200, translation management and all relevant software solutions.
