The Easy English Writing Style Guide has been updated and is now called Clear Written Communications – The Easy English Style Guide.
This combines the content from the previous writing style guide, with easy to follow guidelines from the Images for Easy English guide, and has added many of our new tips into a fresh, attractive, user friendly guide. The latest version will continue to be a free download from our website. We hope you will find it useful in developing your own materials and pass it around your networks.
Clear Written Communications – Easy English Style Guide refers to two new fact sheets. These fact sheets will be useful downloads for anyone wanting to learn more about Easy English and who it is for.
To get a better understanding of what an Easy English document might look like for you, take a look at some of the materials we have developed for these organisations:
- Victorian Equal Opportunity & Human Rights Commission: Beyond Doubt – Telling Police about crime
