NALA's Plain English Editing and Training service

Plain English is a way of presenting information that helps someone understand it the first time they read or hear it. When you use plain English, you:

  • use clear, concise and accurate language,
  • order your points logically, including only necessary detail, and
  • use clean design to make your writing more attractive and easier to follow.
This is our Plain English Mark for approved documents and websites.
