Stop! Read this before you pay for or download online proofreading softwares such as extensions and applications. Your document will thank you for it whether it is your essay assignment for class or your blogs for business.
While it is in our nature to automate and speed up everything in our life, especially in a life filled technological advancements, writing is one instance where that will always do more harm than good. If you think about it, these online proofreading softwares (whether it is for purchase or for free) corrects grammars in the proofreading process through computer algorithms. This is simply a fancy word which says there are a set of rules set already in place.
Now if you know anything about writing and how human nature operates in the context of languages, it is a form of art. Art can be helped by technologies to an extent, yes; but it can never be fully automated. Similarly, writing can not be accurately proofread using computer algorithms. In writing, everything must be taken into context. Computers do not have the knowledge or power to do that (not yet, or not in the near future at least). Grammars only in a contextual sense combined with nuances. Nuances can not be automated. So how do you expect any online softwares to truly perform proofreading services for your paper?
Let me give you a simple example from an experiment using online proofreading softwares:
He likes technology
He like technology
None of the proofreading softwares were able to identify the error in the second line - notice that the correct grammar is with “likes,” not “like.” Although the difference is only in one letter, it makes a huge, eyebrow raising difference and the error is blatantly obvious! You can even experiment this on your own with Microsoft Word.
While you probably know now never to rely on online proofreading softwares that does not understand or take into consideration contexts or nuances, that does not mean that you should not get your paper proofread.
Proofreading is most often the last step in any writing process. After all the changes has been made during the editing process, proofreaders check for spelling and grammar mistakes along with keeping layouts and style consistent throughout the paper. Proofreaders check that the content is correct. Proofreading services include going beyond “spellchecking” to catch errors with eyes that softwares may not catch. Although with proofreading, there are no major rewriting work done, this step is nonetheless a very important step.
The best way to get your essay, thesis, dissertation, research paper, and blog proofread is through utilizing online proofreading services. This means that instead of having computer softwares, human experts who proofread papers as their living and who understand contexts and nuances proofread your work.
For example, if you were to use online proofreading services instead of proofreading softwares, the error in the example provided above would easily be identified and fixed.
