Plain Language Assessment and Editing

How does PlainPages work?

When you upload documents to PlainPages, expert staff at UAMS CHL do the following:

  • Assess your document to determine readability by using appropriate formulas for type of text and verify use of plain language best practices (i.e. formatting)
  • Edit your document to apply plain language best practices to improve the readability (6th grade or lower), understandability, and actionability of your document
  • Provide a summary report that includes grade level readability of your original and revised documents, readability formulas used, and additional comments and recommendations to consider
  • Partner with medical translators to offer Spanish Language Translation for your plain language document
