What’s the difference between Wordtune and other grammar correction tools or writing assistants?

While grammar correction tools act as copy editors with the sole purpose of catching errors, Wordtune’s mission is to help you translate your ideas into writing by offering completely new phrasing that helps you express yourself better. We are a collaborative tool that surfaces smart possibilities and encourages you to explore and consider them - just like a real companion.

In addition to being grammatically correct, our suggestions allow you to perfect your tone, word choice and flow. 

Is Wordtune taking sentences from other sources? 

Wordtune does not take content directly from other literature, but instead utilizes AI technology to rewrite your own original sentence in  new ways. The only feature that involves other sources is ‘Examples,’  which allows you to compare your phrasing with trusted sources (like journalists) across the web. Still, Wordtune does not insert these sentences into your work, but rather simply provides you with a point of comparison.

What is the source of the text Rewrite use to make suggestions?

Wordtune is based on machine learning models trained on large datasets of properly-written text from the Web. The suggestions Wordtune makes are based on patterns learned from this data.

Wordtune changed the meaning of my text or suggested words and phrases that I didn't include in my document. Why is it happening?

Wordtune knows how to generate Rewrite suggestions by finding patterns of human language in vast amounts of text. Therefore, it may sometimes want to slightly change the meaning of the text to convey a more common idea or to add information that it thinks is implied. We are teaching Wordtune to be particularly good at preserving the meaning of your input text, but since we give it some creative freedom it may occasionally offer suggestions that seem out of context.

In some cases, it may misinterpret your text and give inaccurate or irrelevant suggestions. Here are a few tips to make sure this doesn’t happen:

- Always make sure to use Rewrite on full and complete sentences that have a period at the end.

- Use Rewrite for only one sentence at a time.

- If you're unhappy with the suggestions you receive, try to Rewrite your sentence again.

Please note that we're constantly improving our models and would love to hear from you about cases where Wordtune may have provided an unsatisfactory result. Please click on the ‘Provide Feedback’ button in your Wordtune window or write to us directly at info@wordtune.com.

Are you collecting data on my text?
