I don't think that it applies in the same way to languages other than 
English. Or at best, each language has it's own algorithms. In other 
languages they are not much known or used (in Spanish for example). 
there's a summary of the subject by Gez Lemon [1]. I'm sure we've been 
through this before, but I can't find anything in the archives.

WCAG 2.0 has "3.1.5 Reading Level" but it is level AAA, I think because 
it is not testable. The "understanding" page [2] is worth a look, if 
only to see how long-winded and complicated it is.
