Tip 52. Embrace plain language

Writing in plain language means using clear, simple, and direct language that you’ve carefully chosen to help people to understand your message.

Although writing in plain language takes time and effort, studies suggest the investment pays off in the long-run.

For example, if you use plain language, then your clients can understand your documents more easily, which means you spend less time answering questions and providing clarifications.

Studies also suggest that lawyers save time when a firm uses plain language, since lawyers can also read and digest documents more quickly and easily, reducing time and effort for lawyers almost as much as for clients.
