Customizing a presentation is not easy. You have to reduce complex vocabulary but keep it relevant. Scientists use terminology that may be difficult for ordinary people to comprehend. To aid understanding, less technical terminology is required when speaking to a specific audience. Basic terminology has the potential to reduce its significance or dilution. It was therefore difficult to simplify my scientific message about the Deepwater Horizon oil spillage. There were not enough synonyms and translations for some technical terms to make the concept understandable by the intended audience. Clear, concise presentations with numerous illustrations can help complex subjects be understood. A professional should use simple language to present information.
However, my research proved to be crucial in enhancing my ability to adapt the message so that audiences understand certain themes even though there is jargon. One way to communicate and connect with your intended audience is by ensuring that the text contains less jargon and uses more difficult words. I learned how to communicate with the audience using nonverbal clues. It was easy to build rapport with the crowd by using simple language. This allows them to understand the long-term and immediate effects of Deepwater Horizon’s oil spillage on biodiversity. But, I am vigilant to ensure that the accuracy, reliability, and quality of the materials were not compromised by simple language. Plain English allows professionals to communicate with people outside of the academic circle in a way that is easy for them (Matveeva and co., 2017). Sometimes I used common terms to describe the magnitude of the spillage.
