Easy Read Translation
Our Easy Read translation services
Easy Read is a specialist format that combines images with clear text. It is designed to help organisations communicate with people with a learning disability. The Easy Read format has been developed by and with adults with a learning disability to meet their needs.
Our experienced and knowledgeable in-house experts can produce Easy Read documents, videos and surveys.
We have produced Easy Read documents for the NHS, the Scottish Parliament, Bristol Community Health CIC, Bristol City Council, and many housing associations and local authorities.
We have worked closely with a leading consultant on Easy Read translation to develop our service and ensure that our Easy Read is fully accessible to the target audience.
Our Easy Read user groups, run in partnership with the UK’s leading learning disability charity MENCAP, and a local charity OpenStoryTellers, make sure we produce the best and most accessible Easy Read documents possible. We believe it’s fundamentally important that we continue to receive direct input from the people most likely to use the documents, and are dedicated to the continual improvement of our service to ensure ongoing accessibility.
