Company Summary

Govlish--What Government Stands For--grows out of 10 years of writing, editing, and formatting government documents. Our customers are 14 million users who each month seek to demystify the language of government. We are a crucial link in helping people to better understand and interact with their government. Government is awesome, but when we find arrogance and elitism in our government, we turn into pitchfork wielding Teapartyers.
