- News organisation ProPublica ‘translated’ one of their articles into plain language, in an effort to be more accessible to people with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
- Here’s the original article: People with Developmental Disabilities Were Promised Help. Instead, They Face Delays and Denials.
- And here’s the plain text version: Arizona Promised to Help People With Developmental Disabilities. But Some Had to Wait a Long Time. Some Did Not Get Help at All.
- It’s fascinating to read the articles side by side and see how they compare. The plain language version simplifies sentences, writes in active voice, and uses bullet points for lists.
