Socialreporter | Making pdf policy accessible through Simply Understand – David Wilcox introduces us to Corrine Pritchard, creator of Simply Understand:
Simply Understand is a unique translation service. Are you fed up with gobblydegook and jargon? Are you frustrated by endless sentences and hundred-page documents? Simply Understand aim to cut your policy papers, manuals and programmes down to size! When everything is simply readable, you can simply understand.
It sounds a lot like what we did at Big City Talk, but on a broader scale. Corrine hasn’t received any paid commissions for her work yet, which she currently does on a purely voluntary basis. Hopefully Local Authorities will soon recognise the value of this type of work and start putting all public consultation documents trough the Plain English mill.
