Event description

Description

This customised workshop will deliver training with 2 expert trainers to ensure participants have an in-depth understanding of creating Easy English document from start to finish, including an overview of images and design.

It covers topics such as:
 what is Easy English and who is it for?

 the difference between plain language and Easy English

 how to use our Easy English Style Guide: Clear Written Communications (a copy is provided at the workshop)

 the importance of consumer testing

 why communications need to be accessible.

Participants will have opportunity to work on the translation of a document from their agency, under the guidance of expert trainers, with the aim to leave with a completed translation at the end of the day.

Bring your own document to work on throughout the day. This should be a short document (1-2 pages in length) that would be beneficial for people with low English literacy. For example, an agreement, an action plan, a factsheet or a document outlining a process.
