We describe two systems for text simplification, one that performs lexical and syntactic simplification, and another that performs sentence compression optimised to satisfy global text constraints such as lexical density, the ratio of difficult words, and text length. We report a large scale evaluation that demonstrates the superiority of our systems, individually and in combination, over the state of the art, and also report a comprehension based evaluation of contemporary automatic text simplification systems with target non-native readers.
