Writing in plain English

What does it mean to write something in “plain English”? It means to write a document simply and clearly, holding your audience in mind. To write in plain English, follow these guidelines:

1. Avoid using complicated or unusual words.
2. Write shorter sentences that focus on one
idea at a time.
3. Lay out all of the ideas instead of assuming
that the reader will figure out what you meant.
