Free Online proofreading tools that will help improve Your Writing

Free Online proofreading tools are a great way to help you and improve your writing.

Whether you are writing a blog post on the Adlandpro Blogging community, creating a comment or any other styles of writing that you are doing online, it is important to be able to proofread what you have written so that people will understand what you are saying to them.
We live in a global community where in most cases we use the English language and it can be a challenge to write in a way that people will find what we say easy to understand. For many people who already “know” English, writing can still be a challenge on many levels.
Unless you hire an expert copywriter who will help you with the task of proofreading, using free online proofreading tools are an option and lets face it when you can find free e tools  that are effective for their purpose, then that is a bonus :-)
Before sharing these free online proofreading tools with you the fact is  nothing beats the human eye and getting a second opinion.

  • Proofreading can be the difference between copy that is successful and copy that gets ignored. There is no excuse in this modern world for spelling and grammatical errors on websites or in blogs. What such mistakes tell me is that the company or owner is a sloppy thinker whose products or services are not necessarily going to be delivered.

  • Hi Diane,
    Thank you for this article.
    In your review about the above tools, can you tell me whether writers should have any concerns pertaining to safeguarding their copyrights? When I scoped the T&C on the first tool, some of what they printed was a bit concerning. I just completed a 95,000 word (215 pages) book, which is rather advanced. I have a few long sentences, including lists and am sometimes confused about punctuation. I’m not too concerned about grammar or vocabulary. What tool would you suggest is most appropriate for me to use? Which precautions should I take to ensure some spell-check tool company doesn’t come back claiming they own the copyrights of my book.
    Thanks for your insight and thoughts on these questions.
    Regards,
    Xavier

    • Hi Xavier
      After reading the TOS of all three services and then reading a few other TOS’s of other online services, while I can understand your concerns, I have to be honest and say that all these services are similar in their wording..that being said, I am not a lawyer and it took me a fair length of time to get through the wording. While it is always good to check into everything, I do believe that your work would be safe with these services.

      If you are concerned about copyright issues and from the sounds of it, I would say that your 215 pages need to be protected, I would suggest that you get your book properly copy written. I found this post by J. Washburn who explains how to register your book. I liked what he had to say and the way he said it. Hopefully it will give you food for thought
      Here is the link if you are interested:

      Now as for which tool would I use? In order of preference I will say ( funny enough, its how I put them on the post lol)

      1.Paper Rater
      2. Ginger
      3. After the deadline

      I thought at first that Ginger would be the best tool because I could get the tool as an extension, but something about it was not working too well for me and at times I found it annoying, but that is just my opinion.

      I would suggest that you talk to other people and see what they have to say or why they are liking a particular tool before deciding what you are wanting to do.
