Difference between Plain and Easy English
You might have heard about Plain English, so what is the difference between Plain and Easy English?
Easy English is a style of writing that is simple and concise, focuses on key information and uses words and images to help readers understand the information.
Plain English is a style of writing in which the language, structure, and presentation of a document all work together to help the reader. A document written in Plain English is easy to read, understand, and act on after just one reading.
