The WriteMark® — the quality mark for clear communication

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.

The WriteMark sets the bar for 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.
