Our business principles

We believe in:
  • being reliable, responsive, ethical, approachable and easy to work with
  • providing high-quality work whose standards are supported by evidence and research
  • keeping our promises and meeting deadlines
  • being clear about our prices – you’ll find them set out on the website or you can ask us to quote for a specific job
  • the benefits that good plain-language editing can bring to your business and customers  –  because it makes sense to ensure your documents are clear and easy to read
  • the benefits of good writing-skills courses offered by experienced presenters – because helping your staff to write more clearly will be good for your customers, your colleagues and your business
  • dialogue with other plain-language practitioners around the world.
