Technical language

Avoid jargon, legal language, unexplained abbreviations or acronyms. Avoid Latin terms such as ad hoc, etc or et al. 

Technical and legal language can be rewritten in plain English. Consider the audience of the page before rewriting.

Use generic terms rather than bureaucratic or corporate names. Where jargon and acronyms must be used, make sure they are explained.
