The International Readability Centre is a clearinghouse for information on clear and simple writing. Its mission is to seek solutions through multilingual and international networking, similar to the Plain Language Movement.


  The worldwide network for research on clear and simple writing collects multidisciplinary information from various linguistic communities. This exchange of information among linguists, communicators and jurists from government and business has resulted in mutual enrichment and made the best practices more widely known.


  We have a complete library, and our Web site provides information on conferences, publications and other items that will help improve the readability of your communications
