It contains a set of writing rules and a dictionary with a controlled vocabulary. The writing rules cover aspects of grammar and style, while the dictionary gives a controlled vocabulary of approved words.

These approved words were selected because they were familiar words and easy to understand. Generally, each approved word has only one meaning and one approved part of speech. In addition to its general dictionary, the rules of ASD-STE permit the use of company-specific or project-oriented words referred to in Simplified Technical English as technical names and technical verbs. Although ASD-STE was originally developed for the aerospace industry, today it has become the most widely used controlled language on the planet.

In fact, it has become such a success that other industries are also adopting it, or adapting its principles to their own needs. Interest in ASD-STE has also increased dramatically in the areas of language services, professional translation and interpreting, as well as in the academic world.
