Summary/Abstract: Software readability models encompass reading and understanding code in a given context on the abstract level of the language it is written. This localizes the quality into a certain region of understanding, while the actual understanding of a program component depends on user defined types /program code in a system is a hypertext, the complexity of the idea presented and the complexity of the language tools used. In this paper we define general understandability as a multi-layer model, including all parts of translating an idea from the computer programming component into natural language.
