Laymanize

Definition - What does Laymanize mean?

To laymanize is to transform technical jargon or high-level communications into simple, or layman's, terms. This makes the message more accessible to a broad audience, many of whom have no experience or knowledge on the technical topic. Laymanizing is important in IT because more technical language can be incomprehensible even to regular tech users.

Techopedia explains Laymanize

The term "layman" refers to a non-expert. It was preceded by the common phrase "in layman's terms," and gained some ground when it became an official entry on CollinsDictionary.com in 2012. This concept is especially relevant in the tech world, where many of the technologies we rely on every day are beyond what most people have the background to understand. A laymanized description of a concept provides people with as much information as they are likely to be able to process, rather than speaking in technical terms and losing them altogether.
