<You might want to research Basic English, a concept invented early

I have heard rumours recently of the development of something called
"structured English", which would be used to write documentation that could
then be very easily translated.

This rumour originated from a non-technical (non)writer who is working for
Oracle in the Netherlands, but I don't remember his name...

That's all I know. Anyone else heard rumours about this?
