Even if you write incredibly, it is always better if you have a second opinion about your text. InstaText can act as your writing partner who can review your writing and suggest improvements.
This short tutorial gives you a quick introduction to using InstaText to improve your writing and shows you how convenient it is to use.
Let’s first take a look at the following video that demonstrates the use of InstaText (click on the play button):
Tip: a click on the InstaText logo will bring you into your environment for improving the texts.
Let’s get started.
Step 1: Paste or enter your text in the left window.
Paste the text you want to check for improvements. You can also write a new text or edit the text. Click the IMPROVE TEXT button in the middle.
Hint: click the SAMPLE button above to obtain random sample text.
Step 2: See suggestions for improving the text.
In the right window, various suggestions for improvement are displayed. The revised text may include grammatical and other corrections, improved vocabulary and the use of words, word improvements, and even a complete rewrite of the text.
Step 3: Revise the improvements.
Compare the original text with the new text. Keep in mind that you don’t have to accept all the suggestions.
Click on any suggestion and choose ✓ to accept this change and × to reject it. You can also undo it by pressing the UNDO button above.
Step 4: Improve the text.
Use the Tracking Changes toolkit above to quickly accept and reject suggestions. The following use of the toolkit can really increase your productivity. You may reject some changes and accept everything else. Or perhaps accept some changes and reject everything else.
You may want to edit the text while still watching the changes. Both insertions and deletions are possible.
A click on a word will show you synonyms and short explanations.
Alternative strategy: Edit your original text.
It is also possible to edit the original text in the left window while viewing the suggestions in the right window. The content of the right window remains unchanged, so you can concentrate on improving your text.
Just click on the EDIT button in the lower left corner to obtain this view.
Step 5: Review the new text.
Click the button in the upper right corner to switch between different views. You can hide changes and read only the improved text. Inserted words are still underlined so you can pay attention to them.
Did you notice the COPY button in the lower right corner?
Step 6: Copy the new text.
The text is now improved! Press the COPY button in the lower right corner to copy the text to the clipboard. It will then be stored in memory so you can paste it into your email, word processor, or wherever you need it.
Would you like to further improve your text?
Simply press the RE-EDIT button (in the middle) and the latest version of your text on the right will move to the left window. You are back to Step 1 and can continue improving your text.
Press the CLEAR button to clear the canvas. You are ready to improve your next text.

“This tool is outstanding, exceeded my expectations. I’m used to using Grammarly but InstaText is a more thorough tool and comes up with much better suggestions for rewrites. A game changer for editing.”
— Stephan Skovlund, Business Consultant
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!
