This term checker helps you to make sure that text conforms to ASD Simplified Technical English (ASD-STE100). (The word term means the same as the word keyword in ASD-STE100.)
This term checker is for technical publications managers who are not satisfied with the large cost of enterprise software for Simplified Technical English. The term checker gives you an effective analysis of text without unnecessary features such as management reports and authoring memory that add to the cost of the software. Unlike products such as HyperSTE and the Boeing Simplified English Checker, the TechScribe term checker is a basic but effective product at a competitive cost.
This term checker uses LanguageTool as a framework (www.languagetool.org). You can also use the term checker in Firefox, LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and oXygen XML Editor. The grammar and the terms that the term checker validates are specified in 4 XML files.
You must customize the rules to include the Technical Names and the Technical Verbs that your organization uses.
