What did we cover?

We wanted to make this webinar different. We tried to make it educational and have the attendees leave having learned something. From the feedback we have received from the global attendees, we achieved our aims.

Taking an old technical manual from a Hurricane aircraft and extracting two example pieces of text, firstly we took a warning and then a procedural part of technical writing. Showing why the original version would fail to meet the Simplified Technical English rules of today and how you must present the same text to comply with Simplified Technical English rules.

We then wanted to gather the attendee feedback and asked them their opinion comparing original to Simplified Technical English versions and the results were very interesting indeed. Overwhelmingly the attendees voted for the Simplified Technical English versions of the text. Was this representative of the truly international audience that this webinar attracted?

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
