Below are two examples of how WordWise can help. Each case study contains an original, minimal, and WordWise version.
Notice how in both cases, the original text is difficult to follow. The minimal version is the same text stripped down to its barest meaning, while the WordWise version is clear, easy to follow, and connects to the reader.
Both original examples are taken from training manuals.
