The Federation publishes helpful resources about plain language.


Our resources pages offer an increasing range of materials about plain language, including: 

  • updates and articles 
  • guidelines and references 
  • a bibliography 

The Updates and articles page has the Federation’s blog, which provides the latest information on how we are progressing with our agenda. 

The Guidelines and references page offers useful insights into how you can implement the ISO plain language standard, including: 

  • case studies of projects that have used the ISO standard 
  • a guide on how to conduct a case study that we might publish. 

The Federation is also publishing guidelines and standards related to plain language in particular sectors, such as for health communication. 

Our Bibliography page  supports the ISO plain language standard by listing key references that provide empirical evidence for the guidelines in ISO 24495-1.
