capito goes international

Easy to understand language in English, Italian and French

We have been simplifying information in the German-speaking world for over 20 years.

Now we are taking the next step. Within the framework of the ERASMUS+ project “Capito! Compris! Understood! Understood!” we are networking with experts from all over Europe.

Thus, we ensure comprehensibility and accessibility in English, Italian and French.

What is the project about?

The topic of “comprehensibility” affects us all, no matter what language we speak.

In Europe, various concepts for language simplification have become established. In German-speaking countries, the TÜV-certified capito method has set essential standards.
