Plain Language from Start to Finish
 Description

Plain Language from Start to Finish

with Iva Cheung

Being able to convey information clearly and succinctly is an essential skill for editors, especially those who work on documents for the public. In legal, medical, and emergency situations, having clear communication may be a matter of life or death.

This interactive seminar will give you tools to create a document in plain language, with exercises and activities to practise what you’ve learned. We’ll explore plain language as a process that entails:

  • audience analysis,
  • ethical considerations,
  • language considerations,
  • design considerations, and
  • user testing.

Iva Cheung is a Certified Professional Editor and has won the Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence, the President’s Award for Volunteer Service, and the Karen Virag Award. She holds a Master of Publishing degree and a PhD in health sciences, and she teaches the Plain Language in Health Literacy course in Simon Fraser University’s Plain Language Certificate program.
