I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not a native English speaker. Writing in English provides extra effort and care on my part, but I have some help. Grammarly helps me keep this website free of typos as well as keeps things coherent. It provides suggestions not only on how to fix typos but also on improving the article’s structure.
Grammarly does 3 things for me that are essential:
- Fixes typos.
- Checks the syntax. Something can be written without typos but could not make sense.
- Checks the “sentiment” of the text. Is the text “informative,” “confident,” this sort of thing. It’s guidance, but it helps me understand if I’m hitting my target.
The problem it solves
It ensures that you’re always writing correct text, regardless of the medium you’re using online. It integrates with any text box, so you can still use it in anything where you write the text with a certain quality level. The AI is amazing and provides suggestions even for words spelled correctly but don’t “make sense” in the context.
It goes much further than a simple spell checker and an amazing tool to have on your toolbox.
Why I use it?
Grammar is hard, especially when you’re trying to convey a message as simple as possible. Some of the topics on this website are challenging, and straightforward text makes for easy understanding. Fortunately, I have readers worldwide, so it’s even more important to have simple text for complex topics.
