We will also try to be as clear as possible as to the complicated and/or scientific information

Is this right? I have some doubts in the "as to the.." part, it just feels weird. Would it be "more correct" if I wrote this?

We will also try to be as clear as possible regarding the complicated and/or scientific information

  • it is grammatically correct, but you would be using three as es, which is redundant. I would use any of these "regarding, concerning, with respect to," Nov 5, 2015 at 5:54
  • I may use 'on', perhaps! Because to me it sounds better when we stay clear on something.

Both sentences have a similar meaning.

In your example, as to and regarding perform the same function to mean with regards to.

However the negative of both, as not to and without regards to has two different meanings:

1) We will explain things so as not to overcomplicate a complicated subject.
2) We will explain things without regards to overcomplicating a complicated subject.

#1 means the explanation will attempt to explain things simply
#2 does care how complicated the explaination might be
