Have you ever wanted to get your message across clearer and faster? Using  plain language may be the answer!

Plain language can make any type of writing more accessible, from emails and memos to reports and marketing materials. This virtual training introduces strategies for word choice, font selection, grammar use, user testing, and more that help us communicate quickly and effectively with both native and nonnative English speakers.

Join us to learn how people across Wisconsin—and across the globe—rely on plain language to save time, money, work, and frustration by promoting better understanding and customer satisfaction.  

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension provides affirmative action and equal opportunity in education, programming and employment for all qualified persons regardless of race, color, gender, creed, disability, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital or parental, arrest or conviction record or veteran status.
