Examples, if you like something, share a link, it’s a good way of communicating ideas.

If a single word can convey the main idea of the whole sentence or has greater importance, best to bold it, e.g. ‘Reduce the size of image X by 25%’ or ‘Reduce the size of image X to 25%’.

Use specific subject lines in communications to ensure clarity, e.g. ‘Homepage – Layout amends’.

Try not to use colloquialisms or slang, they easily get misunderstood.
