How to Align Text Information from 190 Different Countries

I am an editor of the text information part of the Lido RouteManual. Additionally to the charting information, the Lido RouteManual contains a text part with rules and regulations to be observed by flight crews. They comprise extracts from ICAO Standards and Practices, EASA- and FAA Regulations as well as publications of some 190 countries. The topics range from ATC Procedures, Communications, Navigation, Aerodrome Information to Meteorology, just to name a few.

What is state of the art technology when it comes to working with General Navigation Information and References?

Pilots need to look up supplementary navigational information in the General Part during all flight phases several times a flight. This process can be time consuming, especially when the respective documents are displayed in 3rd party readers. Pilots have to deal with different formats and user interfaces while administrators have to maintain two applications. Those readers are not necessarily designed for the airline industry where needs of users are different from those of consumer applications.
