Abstract
ABOP, an Automatic optimizer for Patient Information Leaflets (PILs), aims to improve the readability of Dutch PILs by tackling three of the issues that make a PIL hard to read: the scientific terminology used, the redundancy which makes a PIL needlessly lengthy and the overlap between illocutionary acts which often make no distinction between an instruction, a warning and mere informative text. ABOP combines a highly accurate learning-based terminology extraction web service with an application that can be plugged into Microsoft Word and easily used by PIL authors.
