Your message is clearly written, technically accurate and grammatically correct. But, is it readable by your audience?

If you write for a multilingual audience whose second language may be English, or if your audience may not possess the vocabulary required to really understand what you’re commu­nicating, it’s a good idea to check the readability statistics for your document.

Go to Options (Office Button, Word Options or File, Options), choose Proofing and check the box for Show readability ­statistics in the section labeled “When correcting spelling and grammar in Word.” Each time you run Spell Check, readability statistics will be displayed.
