Press release from: acrolinx GmbH

The Berlin-Based company's latest software solution will assure quality and cut costs in the aerospace industry and beyond

Berlin, Germany. May 7, 2007. Acrolinx GmbH, the worldwide leading producer of quality assurance tools for technical information, has received compliance for its Simplified Technical English checker from ASD, the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe. Customers who require standard ASD Simplified Technical English, especially in the aerospace industry, can now benefit from the market leading solution for information quality assurance. The Acrolinx solution helps customers save costs and dramatically increase efficiency by encouraging reuse. Standardizing documents and enhancing their quality will also minimize the risk of safety, damage, or liability claims.

Acrolinx draws on its years of experience as the market leader in authoring support and terminology lifecycle management as the basis for its ASD-STE checker. Its language solution, Acrocheck™, offers high-profile companies a rounded approach to checking spelling, grammar, and style. Unlike plug-in solutions, it also manages terminology and provides users with standard sentences for Intelligent Reuse™. The Acrolinx ASD-STE checker is based on these functionalities, which have already been tested in practical contexts. It can therefore be integrated smoothly into the Acrocheck™ tool. Customers can also choose between different modules of the product, ranging from ASD-STE to less restrictive style rules.

“We are excited that this new functionality promises to help us more confidently address the needs of the aerospace domain,” said Andrew Bredenkamp, CEO of Acrolinx.

“Acrocheck™’s flexibility facilitates the implementation of Simplified Technical English. Our tool can thus support customers in ensuring the consistency of their documents by using controlled English as a basis.”

“Since it is built in to our existing solution as another type of language standard, our STE checker is much more than a plug-in,” Bredenkamp added. “The server-based style, grammar, and terminology functionalities as well as enterprise-standard metrics and reporting, that make Acrocheck™ so popular make our Simplified English checker unique on the market.”

The Brazilian aerospace manufacturer Embraer, one of the largest commercial aircraft producers in the world, has recently decided to deploy Acrolinx’s ASD-STE checker.
Simplified Technical English was developed within the aerospace industry to help make English-language documentation more easily comprehensible for a multinational audience. Non-aerospace industries have adopted the guidelines of the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe Simplified Technical English (ASD-STE) in their own documentation. ASD-STE 100 is a set of Writing Rules and a Dictionary of Controlled Vocabulary. The Dictionary includes a vocabulary selected for its clarity and sufficient for expressing any technical sentence.
