A document in plain language is easy for the intended reader to read, understand, and act on. The WriteMark is a quality mark for documents and websites that meet a high standard of plain language.
Before we award a WriteMark, we measure the content against 28 plain language criteria.
It’s a high bar. People tell us that when their content achieves a WriteMark, it feels like getting an Oscar for plain language.
We launched the WriteMark in 2005, and WriteMark Plus — which includes user testing — in 2018.
Holders of the WriteMark and WriteMark Plus include financial services firms, healthcare organisations, law firms, and government agencies.
