Plain English Campaign
The Plain English Campaign is a pressure group based in the United Kingdom. It encourages organisations to use simple, understandable language for public information, which can include contracts, terms and conditions and bills. Plain English is defined as "language that the intended audience can understand and act upon from a single reading".
They provide a document certification service to organisations, which allows the organisation to use the widely-recognised crystal symbol on the document to certify that it is written in plain English. On the opposite end of the spectrum, they give their Foot in Mouth award to those who mangle the English language.
