Easy English resources are now available on Health Translations!
The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity & Health and Scope are working together to add Easy English resources to Health Translations.
Easy English is a style of writing that has been developed to provide understandable, concise information for people with a limited ability to read and write in English.
If you have quality Easy English resources, with original English versions, contact us and we'll add them to the directory. Send an email to Sabina Tresise and include both links to your Easy English and to your original English documents.
