Professional writing and editing services

for organisations that communicate with the public and other non-specialists

 
 

CLEAR

Question 1 — If you were asked to read a section or a page of one of your company documents — once through, exactly as it was written — to a random group of people, would they find it easy to follow?

CONCISE

Question 2 — If you were asked to explain the contents of one of your documents to a random group of people, would you use the same words and language in which it was written?

CONSIDERATE

Question 3 — Were either of your answers to questions 1 and 2, no? If so, you’re probably making the mistake many do, of writing documents to suit your writers rather than your audience.

 

At Reporting for Business, we know that what you have to say is important. What we do is make sure
that your readers know it too.

Would your publications pass the ‘plain English’ test?

 
 

Plain English (or plain language) is a globally recognised way of writing from the point of view of your readers.

It transforms jargon and wordiness into clear, concise and considerate language that everyone can understand.

Governments and major companies around the world recommend using plain English, as do we.
