This SAE Standard is applicable to translations of automotive service information into any target
language. The metric may be applied regardless of the source language or the method of translation (i.e.,
human translation, computer assisted translation or machine translation).
Note that the current version of the metric does not measure errors in style, making it unsuitable for
evaluations of material in which style is important (e.g., owner's manuals or marketing literature). The
metric can be expanded to accommodate style and other requirements of particular new media.
