The only Ogden's Basic English text-simplifying tool.

Basic English.

Because English is the language of Science and Business and that not everybody speaks it fluently, it could be frustrating not to understand an interesting technical or scientific text. That's when Ogden Basic English comes in.


We use a different approach to the error-prone process of translation between languages: we assume the reader has some limited knowledge of English and so will be able to read the text after a process of Simplification. When translating from one language to another, particulaly between languages with different linguistic roots, sometimes crucial information is lost. With Simplish, you lose nothing, if you, or the person you are trying to communicate with, have just a 1,000 words long vocabulary in English, because any text can be simplified down to this level. We have even simplified 30,000 common scientific words, which are described in footnotes where necessary!



Using our general cognition engine and Simplish, we are able to generate a graphical representation of knowledge that is capable of doing summaries in standard english without looking at specific words, word frequencies, sequences or any prior training! The system can leave out any sentences whose meaning is repeated or any irrelevant snippets of material that might be present.
