Plain language for financial content: Assessing the impact of training on students' revisions and readers' comprehension

Project description

Plain language for financial literacy

In the modern world, as the task of taking financial decisions has been transferred from institutions to individuals, there has been an increasing need for financial literacy, the ability to correctly comprehend financial information, among individuals. As this has been recognised as an issue by the EU, many methods have been considered, one of those being the use of plain text and language. Unfortunately, this method has not had consistent results and there is a lack of empirical evidence on whether it will be useful. The EU-funded PLanTra project will tackle this issue by investigating the impact of plain language training on business students and the comprehensibility of the texts.
