Easy Read Service

Easy Read is an accessible format that makes information simpler and easier to understand for people with a learning disability. Easy Read uses clear language, short sentences, and pictures to help explain things. 

We will work in co-production with you and our Easy Read Checking team to ensure our Easy Read translation is accurate and accessible.

Our step-by-step for creating your Easy Read

The time it takes to translate your document into Easy Read will depend on how large it is. Most documents we do take between one and four weeks as they go through several reviews and iterations.

  1. We will summarise your document, picking out the key points. We put it into an Easy Read formatted document and send the draft to you.
  2. The draft document will be amended and reviewed by our Easy Read Checking Team to make sure it makes sense. We will send you this draft.
  3. The draft will be amended following feedback from you. The final draft will be sent to you for review.
  4. Once the final draft is signed off, a web-accessible and print-ready PDF will be exported and sent to you.

How much does our Easy Read Service cost?

Translating information into Easy Read can take a lot of time as there are a lot of steps to go through.

We quote the cost of translating based on the amount of time we take to complete the work. We look at the word count and complexity of the information. We may have to summarise the information if it is a large document. 

We will review your document and quote you on how much time it will take to create. 

We charge £35 per hour and as we are a charity you do not need to pay VAT.

All quotes include a review of our Easy Read document by our Checking Team.

Here are examples of how we may cost your work:

500-word document – Up to 15 hours of work charged at £35 per hour. It could be less if the information is not very complex. 

1000-word document – Up to 25 hours of work charged at £35 per hour. It could be less if the information is not very complex.

1500-word document – Up to 40 hours of work charged at £35 per hour. It could be less if the information is not very complex.

Over 1500-word document – We will summarise before translating. Depending on word count this may take between 40-60 hours of work charged at £35 per hour.
