Plain Language
Plain language means using easy to use words that most people could understand.

Plain language means using regular words, not words that a lawyer would use. It might include pictures or videos or lists or larger print. 

Simple sentences with one idea are best.

Everyone deserves to have things translated into a language they understand, whether it is another language, sign language, braille, or plain language for all abilities. It is helpful for everyone.
