How to check a text for spelling, stylistic errors and plagiarism — tools comparison

Checking texts for uniqueness, spelling, and style is an obligatory stage before publishing them. Using special software helps to control the site content quality without hiring professional editors and proofreaders.
Using such tools will help you to avoid sanctions from search engines and users' resentment. Minimize the number of errors in the text using appropriate software solutions — this will save you much time and significantly ease the content preparation process.

Which text parameters сan be checked with software?

There isn't any universal service that corrects all the mistakes. Therefore, we use several ones and constantly check both ourselves and the tools. We pay attention to:

  • plagiarism;
  • texting spam score index and keyword stuffing;
  • orthography;
  • stylistics;
  • punctuation;
  • syntax.

When the checking is over, we convey the text to the editor. They verify:

  • common sense;
  • clear structure;
  • text readability and style;
  • information actuality and authenticity.

Therefore, a reader gets a high-quality text only.

Check via Copywritely

Copywritely is available in eight languages, including German, Portuguese, and French. It also automatically provides plagiarism analysis, so you can use it for proof checking.

While analyzing, pay your attention to such indicators as keyword stuffing and redundant phrases. The former ones "overload" the text with the same words and decrease the overall readability. The latter shows us the useless words which make no sense in the text. They are called "redundant" because they are odd ones, and deleting them won't affect the sense of the text.
