Plain Language Human Rights

The Plain Language version of the UDHR was created in 1978 as a way to make the Declaration more accessible to children. This version distills the meaning of each of the UDHR's 30 Articles into easily understood language. This is a critical tool for reaching general populations throughout the world for whom the formal language of the official UDHR is too complex. The goal of the Plain Language Human Rights Project is to translate this version of the UDHR into as many languages as possible. These translations are then recorded by native speakers and incorporated into the UDHR App for distribution to human rights NGOs and schools.
