Damen Introduces Simplified Technical English for DAMOS Software

(Press Release)
Thursday, June 14, 2012

As part of an ongoing effort to make its maintenance software program DAMOS (Damen Asset Management Operating System) even more user-friendly, Damen Shipyards has now captured its maintenance instructions in Simplified Technical English (STE100).

 

This makes reading and understanding these instructions much easier for non-native speakers or inexperienced crew.

 

Simplified Technical English (STE) has a controlled (English) vocabulary with sufficient words to write any technical text. STE was first used in the aerospace industry to reduce ambiguity of instructions and misinterpretation of important technical documents, thereby enhancing safety throughout the industry. Today, STE is used in many other industries. As of now, and with the same goals, Damen is offering its maintenance instructions in STE.
