Editing and training services

Plain English editing

We can edit your materials – from short letters and leaflets to annual reports, training manuals and websites.

When we edit a document or online information, we do whatever we think is needed to make it clearer for the intended reader. This is in addition to proofreading and simplifying each sentence or paragraph.

At all times, we discuss your document with you before, during and after any editing so that we can provide the best possible service.

 

Plain English training

We offer training to give you the know-how and skills to write and edit your own printed or online information.

Our plain English training courses vary from short workshops to half-day and full-day courses. We offer open courses, for people from different organisations, or can tailor a plain English course to a single organisation. We can also offer train-the-trainer courses to groups.

We aim to make the training as relevant as possible by using real-world examples allow participants the opportunity to apply what they learn in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

 

Style guides

We can work with you to develop style guides to standardise your documents.

We have worked with a number of organisations to produce style guides for their particular documents. These guides help ensure consistent terms, clear language and clean design and can apply to anything from a suite of documents to a department to a whole organization.
