How we can help
 
Our editing service is the ideal way for you to make sure that your documents are clear and user friendly, and present the right image. We'll look at your documents from the readers' point of view, and make life as easy as possible for them. more
 
We have developed our courses especially for today's business writers. By 'business writers' we mean anyone who has to write at work. Managers, communications staff, policy writers, council officers and civil servants will all benefit from the course. more
 
If you're too busy to come on a training course, our online course and other products will help you start using plain English straight away.

We have five products that you can either download or access online.

Our plain English approved logo tells your readers at a glance that your documents will be easy to read and understand. People are much more likely to start reading a document if they know it is going to be in plain English. more
 
If you use plain English you will do more business and improve your image:
You will see your sales or 'take-up' rates increase.
People will trust you because they can see you have nothing to hide.
You will project a professional and modern image. more

There's no single, universally accepted definition of what plain English is, but the one we like is this:

'A message is in plain English if it gets its meaning across clearly and concisely to its intended audience, and creates the impression the writer was intending to create.'

About us



Our aim is to help organisations communicate more effectively with their customers, potential customers and the wider world.

Since 1996 we've been working with government departments, local councils, banks, building societies, insurance companies, motor manufacturers, law firms, regulators, charities, the NHS and many other organisations to help them get their message across. We've run training courses all over the UK and in many other countries: the USA, India, Brazil, France, Germany, Finland, Denmark, South Africa and Australia. We've edited documents for organisations all over the English-speaking world.

It's not just big organisations that we can help, though. Small and medium-sized organisations probably have most to lose if their communications aren't in plain English. That hard-won marketing and communications budget can be wasted if your website, leaflets, emails and letters aren't clear.
