Making plain language work for your business.

Most people assume literacy in the English-speaking world is extremely high. Unfortunately, it's not quite as great as we'd all like to think.

If you want your content to be readable and understandable to 85% of the general public, it needs to be hitting a readability grade of 8 or better.

And that's where Readable can help.

Readable uses tried and tested readability formulas, as well as our own proprietary scoring systems, to analyse the readability of your website or text and recommend ways to improve upon it.
