What is plain language?
So we have to change the way we write!
Plain language is a way to review all aspects of a document:
The organization of information
The right words to convey the information
The visual presentation
The goal is to make your information:
Easy to find
Easy to read
Easy to understand
Easy to use
Plain language inspires trust and reassures
Plain language enhances your credibility
Plain language saves you time and even money:
Fewer calls for clarification
Fewer unnecessary back and forths
Fewer incomplete forms received
In other words, communicating in plain language means democratizing information and empowering people!
