Plainly

Plainly Pro is our language clarity solution. In just a few clicks, it assesses the clarity of your texts, pinpoints areas for improvement and produces a new version of your text in plain language.

Plainly in brief:

  • Clarify: give clarity to your texts and foster understanding.
  • Analyze: audit your texts to find out if readers will understand them.
  • Simplify: write in a straightforward, logical style.
  • Add value: boost the impact of your texts on your readers.

Plainly vs. Plainly Pro: what’s the difference?

Plainly is the free clarity assessment tool developed by Labrador. It analyzes all your texts and assigns them a clarity score out of 100.

 

Plainly Pro, which operates on the same platform with a paid subscription, is designed for professionals and goes a step further by working with you on improving your text. It takes you through your document, highlighting what can be improved and suggesting changes to make the text clearer.

 

The Plainly subscription, which you can buy for six months or a year, gives as many users as you want unlimited access to the clarity assessment tool and assistance with clear writing.
