► Who is capito?
capito translates difficult texts into easily understandable language and makes them available in an app. Why do we believe in capito? Because a large part of information used by companies and authorities is not understandable to everyone and thus does not reach people.

Being able to understand information is the basic requirement for an inclusive society and for successful communication. 60% of the population understands information up to language level B1. But 68% of the company and authority communication is offered at the much more difficult language level C1. With the capito app you can decide for yourself in which language level you want to read information.
