International Plain Language Day is October 13 and the theme this year is: Improving Customer Relations.
Clear, everyday words, and as few of them as possible, can help business, governments, and agencies improve relations with their clients, customers, supporters, and the people they serve.
International Plain Language Day encourages people to think about how they can communicate more clearly.
As @WeekendWitch tweeted, “Plain language is cool, we say what we mean; short to the point & no fluff in between... No jargon or passives, just everyday words, straight talking language is NOT for nerds.” Some believe Twitter has had a positive impact on the use of plain language.
Plain language has many benefits for everyone, regardless of their literacy level. Our website lists some of the myths about plain language and the facts.
Here are some ways you can celebrate Plain Language Day in your workplace.
Your customers, patients, clients and supporters will thank you for making the effort.
