December 6-9, 2021 - Virtual Training Course: Plain Language 2.0

Why Plain Language 2.0?

Simple, well-constructed sentences and plain words make it much easier for your reader to understand your content.

But if plain sentences are cemented in walls of words, readers will be discouraged to go through your document as well. Ultimately they will only grudgingly delve into the dense text if they must.

Organizing your content in a clear, logical and reader-focused way must therefore be an integral part of plain writing.
