In the days of the telegraph, writers would count every letter in a message to keep things short and cheap. Though the telegraph is gone now, words can still be costly. Messages that are bloated with high-sounding “business-speak,” packed with technical jargon, or filled with distracting slang waste the reader's time and risk miscommunication. So it’s best to write simply and directly—using plain English.

The emPOWERED Plain English Job Aide helps you to recognize business-speak, jargon, and slang and replace them with clear, direct language so that your writing communicates quickly and accurately. This Job Aide offers the following:

  • a one-page overview of business-speak versus plain English
  • a full-page table of common business-speak phrases and the plain-English counterparts you can use instead
  • a one-page comparison of technical jargon and clearer language
  • an overview of the dangers of slang along with examples and clear revisions
  • a mini-index showing where to learn more in the Write for Business book

The value of plain English cannot be overstated. Everyone in your workplace can benefit from the emPOWERED Plain English Job Aide, and its low price makes having a personal copy easily affordable.
