Dear Pablo, Adding to Ramesh's links and Trevor's, you might also try: http://www.usingenglish.com/resources/text-statistics.php  It returns various readability indices (though based mainly on the American education system). This would give you a surface account, but  it does not take into account the context and other variables necessary to understand a passage. Best, Linda Bawcom
