About Proofreading Tool

The writer in you needs this tool.

In the short term, Proofreading Tool will help you improve your written work, in terms of both grammar and readability.

Over the long term, you will improve as a writer as ProofreadingTool walks you through the process of correcting your own written work. The service provides instant feedback, complete with hundreds of suggestions and explanations to help you understand why any part of your writing may need improvement.

Here's how it works.

Proofreading Tool will flag areas in your writing that need attention and present automatic fixes wherever possible. These suggested fixes will be accompanied by explanations for why the portion of text was flagged and why there is probably an issue. If an automatic fix wasn't found, then the service will present you with a variety of examples and explanations to help you correct any issues yourself.

For most cases Proofreading Tool will point out the issue, describe why it's an issue and then provide writing examples to guide you through rewording the text in question. Think of it as a step-by-step tutorial, with the added benefit of helping grade your essay before anyone else reads it.

Hear Ye, Writers of All Shapes and Sizes!

  • Teachers who need a jump-start grading a mountain of student essays.
  • Students who want to improve their written work as much as possible before turning it in for a grade.
  • Bloggers who want their readers to take them seriously.
  • ESL (English as a Second Language) students.
  • Anyone composing/sending email in a professional setting.

You should always get input from a second pair of eyes before you submit that essay worth 40% of your grade, or send out that company-wide email. This is especially true when you're tired or distracted, and thus more susceptible to making embarrassing writing mistakes.

You still have do some creative work though ...

As you work through the suggestions Proofreading Tool presents to you, think critically about what is the best for your written work. Keep asking yourself the following questions:

  • Why might the highlighted text be an issue?
  • Do I really understand why the text was flagged in the first place?
  • Is the suggested auto-fix appropriate in the current context?
  • What did I learn from this current issue, so I can apply it to my writing from now on?

Not every issue or suggested fix found by Proofreading Tool will be perfectly correct in every context. If you re-read your sentence and conclude that there is actually nothing wrong with it, simply ignore the issue and move on. If the issue is legitimate, then think about the whole sentence before and after any alteration to make sure it still makes sense.
