Abstract

As plain language is increasing in popularity, the author looks at the intersection of plain language and translation in the context of transforming non-plain language text into plain language. Examples from A Plain English Handbook published by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission are examined with the assistance of key components of skopos and relevance theories.
