Best integrations

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: I used Grammarly for 10 years but recently they keep threatening to discontinue support of integrations. Thier Microsoft Office Integration was official discontinued over a year ago although it is still available and functional but not promoted. Grammarly integrations are not that great and their where no improvements, things just got worse. The integrations in ProWritingAid all work and are easy to install.

Pros:

ProWritingAid has the best integrations into Microsoft Office Suite, Windows Applications, and Web Browsers. Its standalone editor although based on Chrome, is very function and works well and imports a wide range of file formats. Rephrase sentence is a key functionality of ProWritingAid. If it determines something is not correct in your sentence, it will offer two alternatives. Often it will combine sentences when that makes sense to do so. It is quite uncanny how it can understand the meaning in your sentence and say the same thing in less words. Sometimes it gets the meaning of the sentence all wrong but I have learned ProWritingAid can't understand my grammar, neither will my readers and I best start again.

Cons:

ProWriting Aid works differently than other products, such as Grammarly. Corrections in Grammarly are series of changes to each sentence till is "right" it is interactive, and each correction takes several edits. ProWritingAid offers to rephrase your sentences. The approach is different, and it takes some getting use too, but now that I've been using ProWritingAid for a while I prefer its approach.

Great Tool for Extremely Short Texts, Monumental Fail Otherwise

3.0 4 years ago

Comments: Sharing my two cents about ProWritingAid that I purchased a lifetime licence for: If you're reviewing texts about 300 - 400 words in length at maximum, you'll be happy with the tool. Otherwise, it's not worth the money. If you need a short-term solution, then by all means go for it but don't pay a buck for actually using the SW. I've been using the Word add-on for over three months now and if you want to use most of the tools on more than 800 words, the tool simply can't handle the 'load.' Usually, it breaks off after a minute or so and you can run the check again which normally doesn't help. You end up wasting a ton of your time and accomplish nothing at all. While the language advice and the correction improvements you get recommended are helpful, you're better off using Grammarly or another alternative if you're reviewing long chunks of text in one go and don't want to constantly copy-paste from Word to their interface and back which is a pain if you have to do that daily like myself.

Pros:

Totally intuitive. If you know anything about how English, grammar and vocabulary alike, finding your way through the options and how they work will be a breeze. No learning curve. The tool as well as the report are perfectly self-explanatory. Easy-to-use online interface.

Cons:

Useless add-on when dealing with texts of 800+ words. Constant copy-pasting to and from the online interface wasting your time.

Write Well with ProWritingAid

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: It improves my communication and saves me time and money. It is a must-have tool for writers of all genres.

Pros:

It is thorough. I learn how to write with more clarity and accuracy. I can clean up my writing before I hand it off to a human editor for the final editing. It saves me time and money.

Cons:

The learning curve was steep when I started using the software.

The best software of its kind

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: I personally find the Grammar and Spelling filters on the ProWritingAid checker to be most relevant to my personal needs. I would love to see ProWritingAid keep expanding and refining those particular checks! Right now, I feel that the software focuses more on passive voice and optional stylistic refinements than necessary while failing to catch some fairly obvious typos, but I have confidence that the software will just keep improving over time.

Pros:

As a full-time editor, I get the editing software question almost weekly. I like to think of editing software as Microsoft Word's spelling and grammar check on steroids—it's a very similar process, but much more thorough. ProWritingAid is a fantastic last line of defense against rogue typos and subtle style errors.

Cons:

Many users don't understand that editing software can't be used as a substitute for human eyes on their manuscript. Accepting all of ProWritingAid's changes without reviewing them will result in a stilted, strange manuscript! Instead, for best results, review changes individually, evaluating whether you feel that each change is relevant and necessary for your manuscript. This is also a great way to identify areas for improvement in your writing and improve over time! I would love to see ProWritingAid one day check for errors while users type or underline errors within the body of a Word document (as they do on their online interface) but I understand that their MS Word integration is new and features along those lines may be coming in the future!
