How InstaText differs from grammar checkers

First we used spellcheckers, then grammar checkers arrived. However, we have still missed a tool that can help us bring our language to the level of native speakers. All the more so if English is not our mother tongue.

Spelling and grammar checkers do not meet the needs of non-native or less experienced authors and those who want more advanced text improvements. Effective language is much more than grammar, spelling and punctuation. More sophisticated improvements such as sentence structure or context-specific word selection are often required to make the text clearer and more effective. Here the available solutions are far from the quality of an experienced human editor who often rewrites the text completely.

InstaText is your personal writing assistant that rewrites your texts like a native speaker. In a matter of seconds. It is a revolutionary innovation that goes far beyond the correction of grammar, spelling and punctuation. If necessary, the sentences will be completely rewritten and improvements will be suggested as a result of the broader context of the topic.

Let’s take at the following example that was pointed out by a writer who uses InstaText to improve the quality of his latest book.

Facebook post by an author who uses InstaText to help him writing his book.

InstaText’s text improvement engine showed a deep understanding of the author’s text and showed context awareness by inserting the word “file” into the proposed improvements. Note that this word doesn’t appear anywhere in the original text and that it is by no means a single word replacement. The A.I. within InstaText has clearly understood what the author’s text is about. Here we see one of the advantages that users of InstaText so often praise: generating ideas.

InstaText offers far more ideas for text improvement than grammar checkers.

Let’s compare the performance of InstaText with Grammarly, i.e. one of the grammar checkers. We will compare their performance in terms of generating ideas to improve the following sample text. Note that this is a typical clumsy text from a non-native speaker.

Our research shows that knowledge of experts is not semantically different, but rather that information is more connected between each other. The conducted experiments demonstrated that the size of the procedural chunks and retrieval speed of chunks varies between people with different background knowledge. We unequivocally demonstrated that amount of recalled chunks varies according to knowledge and order of information.

Below is the output generated by Grammarly Pro:

As is typical for the grammar checkers, Grammarly adheres as closely as possible to the original and reduces errors. However, the clumsy parts of the paragraph remain unchanged even after corrections have been made.

Let’s now consider the output generated by InstaText:

Suggestions generated by InstaText.

InstaText focuses on rewriting a text for better understanding and readability. The aim is to simulate a native speaker who will help you improve your writing skills. InstaText supports a semantically meaningful difference visualization. All “changes” are introduced as suggestions that can be rejected with a single click.

“I think the difference between InstaText and Grammarly is obvious. While Grammarly corrects the text grammatically, InstaText improves the text and makes it more readable.”

It is clear that the author does not have to accept all ideas generated by the engine. However, accepting only half of them would lead to a much better text, wouldn’t it? The interaction may require some effort, but the end result will be better.

InstaText is especially useful during editing. Reviewing, revising and rewriting are the most difficult parts of the writing process. At the same time there is usually no one around to help us.

Editing is the most demanding part of the writing process.

InstaText helps you restructure your paragraphs so that they are clearer and communicate more effectively. It helps you to be understood and to feel confident when writing.

I can hardly imagine writing articles without InstaText. When I read through the proposed improvements, I immediately understand how the text should sound. It’s like a proofreader you can access at any time.

InstaText is a great tool! I use it to improve English texts such as articles, projects and abstracts for conferences. The tool provides very useful suggestions that help me to translate the text to a professional level so that no additional review by “native speakers” is required. The time and money savings are obvious. I highly recommend it!
