A controlled language (CL), also known as simplified or technical language, essentially consists of a thorough and rigid style guide. Controlled language includes a general dictionary and a set of writing rules which standardise vocabulary and style, aiming to improve consistency, eliminate ambiguity and reduce complexity. In addition, it provides objective criteria for quality control. mLingua offers controlled language services as a means of preparing texts for machine translation or for their better assimilation by a worldwide audience. If you plan to localise a substantial volume of texts written in simple language and plain style you should consider implementing CL in your organisation.
