Certified Simplified Technical English Workshops
Virtual, Virtual, | 05/09/2022 - 05/11/2022

Intended Audience

 

The Certified Simplified Technical English Workshops are meant for writers and translators who work on technical manuals. The workshop will cover the right use of language for these documents. 

 

What Can You Expect?

 

When you read a technical manual for a piece of equipment or a home appliance, do you notice the simple language used? Those documents are written that way because the instructions should be simple and easy to understand. That leaves little room for mistakes when using the equipment. Those manuals are usually written in Simplified Technical English (STE).

 

STE is a form of controlled language that has been specifically created for use in manuals and other technical documents. The workshops will teach participants how to use STE effectively. The most common mistakes made in technical writing will also be discussed as well as the best ways to avoid and resolve them.

 

Important Details

 

The course fee for the workshop is $749 but a $217 discount will be given to those who also registered for the Certified STE Masterclass | US Canada Online. The Course fee will cover exercises, the learning aids, and the certificate of completion. There will also be a 120-day post-training support provided to participants.
