Description

Since 2017, Clarity has been working through the International Plain Language Federation towards developing an objective, measurable, universal multi-language standard for plain language. The early stages of this work were published in The Clarity Journal 79. In June 2019, former Clarity president, Christopher Balmford (on Standards Australia’s behalf) proposed the idea for a plain language standard to the relevant ISO committee. ISO’s decision is due on 25 September.

At this breakfast, Christopher, the current leader of the working group promoting this project, will update us on the latest progress and discuss the value of an international standard for plain English or for plain language.

There is no charge to attend. As usual, non-members are welcome to try one meeting before they join Clarity, but Clarity members have priority when booking.

After you register, you will receive full details of the venue and agenda.
