Technical documentation in the aviation sector is safety critical and must be clear and precise even for non-native English speakers. The aviation industry therefore specified the Simplified Technical English (STE) guidelines. They limit the words and grammatical structures which are allowed to be used in technical documentation. Conventional spellcheckers and grammar checkers however are not able to recognize texts that deviate from the STE specification.
We provided an API that takes sentences as input and outputs errors, warnings, and suggestions for easy implementation into the customer’s existing document editing toolchain. It implements state-of-the-art part of speech tagging and syntax parsing to check spelling and grammar rules of the Simplified Technical English specification.
Results and Impact
Authors can edit and write documentation without having to cross-check the extensive STE specification. A STE proofing step can be avoided or made significantly easier for previously written documents.
We provide our customers with innovative solutions build on cutting-edge technologies from artificial intelligence and machine learning.
