Lisa, thanks for these references.
 
If anyone on the list is aware of resources about writing understandable
content in languages other than English-- especially non-European
languages-- I would appreciate references, links, etc.  I'm thinking of
such things as:
 
in-house style guides;
manuals of style and usage;
industry and government "plain language" initiatives;
measures of readability for languages other than English
conventions regarding use of passive voice (in languages that have
passive voice)
Measures of sentence length
Controlled vocabularies
 
etc.
 
Thanks very much.
John
