I have been using Grammarly for two years, and I didn’t look for any Grammarly alternative since then.

There are lots of reasons for that cause. As the quality of service and the efficiency of grammar checking, I was addicted to using Grammarly more often than I used to use other online grammar checker tools.

Here are a few key features of Grammarly writing tool which you can’t resist using in spite of you’re a student, teacher, blogger, content marketer or freelancer.

  • Writing Styles: One key point where Grammarly better than other most of grammar checkers is its versatile writing style checker. Grammarly doesn't just settle by applying same writing style/rule of everyone. Whenever you write a new article or try to proofread an existing document, you can select the corresponding document type. You might write a legal document, academic paper, business letter, formal letter, medical report, essay or even a web copy such as personal blog post. You're just a few steps away to select the preferred document type to direct the right way to get grammar corrections.
  • Check Punctuation: A successful writing doesn't complete if your article has one misused comma mistake. Grammarly is sufficient of correcting all those punctuation errors in seconds.
  • Grammar Checker: Grammarly is made for correcting English grammar that other small grammar checkers can't detect or correct. For example, Grammarly can understand the difference between Twitter and twitter. In fact, Grammarly claims they can fix over 250 grammar and punctuation errors in a matter of seconds.
  • Plagiarism Checker: If you're a blogger or a freelance writer who produce content for internet marketers, then you should already use any plagiarism checker tool. Grammarly's plagiarism checker is capable of identifying even small similarities in a matter of seconds. It is amazing to see how an average, brand new article can even have 1% plagiarized content.
  • Vocabulary enhancement: If you are not a native English speaker or don't know complex words or many synonyms than professional writers do, then Grammarly's vocabulary builder is probably the best tool you can get for a low price. It comes along with Grammarly's other tools as a free tool for premium members.
  • Proofread service: Grammarly is also offering a paid service to all who want to get their document proofread by Grammarly's professional proofreaders.
  • Autosuggestion: One of my favorite features of Grammarly is their autosuggestion feature. It suggests me things to add or remove to improve the quality of the article. At the end of the day we all want to have a high-quality article, right?
  • Grammarly Mobile Keyboard Application: One of most anticipated feature, which could help every type of businesses that are based on online or offline. Grammarly Android and iOS apps makes it so much easier to write grammatically-correct messages, documents and even guides with your mobile device.

One advantage of using Grammarly for your writing needs is you can view and edit your article anytime no matter where you are.

Once you created your Grammarly account, you will receive free cloud space, with that you can store, edit, view and download documents very easily and effortlessly. Grammarly works well on all devices no matter what you’re using; desktop, tablet, and mobile.

If you are a busy internet marketer just like me and intend to have a top grammar checker which allows you to check grammar on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr and anywhere there’s a text field to add content, then you should check out Grammarly.

Currently, Grammarly has introduced browser extensions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari.

Also, if you’re a professional writer and use Microsoft Word in every day, you would go for Grammarly because it provides software for grammar checking, punctuation correcting and all other stuff you want to get done.

This is a screenshot of Grammarly online editor. It has a pretty nifty interface which reduces clutter and barriers and forms a perfect mode to write content naturally.

If you don’t want to check grammar while you are writing an article from scratch, I would recommend to turn off vocabulary enhancement, proofreading tools. It will save tons of times.

One downside of using Grammarly is it doesn’t support for some platforms. For example, if you want to use Grammarly to proofread articles, suggest synonyms while you are writing an article on Google Docs, then you have to download the document to your PC or copy & paste to Grammarly online editor.

All in all, Grammarly is a perfect grammar checker and assistance to improve English grammar.


Ginger Analytics

Ginger is my first grammar checker tool I have used. I have used it for one and half year before moving to Grammarly.

I moved to Grammarly not just because it doesn’t provide tools to correct grammar. In fact, Ginger grammar can correct all those silly grammar errors, rephrase sentences that any human may probably miss every time they proofread the particular article a few times.

Here’re a few key features and benefits of using Ginger as your writing aid.

  • Grammar Checker: Ginger Grammar is one of the key tools of Ginger. In fact, Ginger claims Ginger grammar tool boosts your writing productivity. Its groundbreaking technology fixes from small grammar mistakes such as singular and plural errors to sophisticated mistakes such as the sentence or tense usage errors.
  • Sentence Rephraser: Ginger's sentence Rephraser is an alternative to Grammarly vocabulary enhancement tool. Even if you're a professional writer, it's hard to change your natural writing tone. That's another reason why ghostwriters charge higher fees in most cases. With this splendid tool, you can generate different sentences for wrote ones. It adds synonyms, idioms and phrases to enrich your paragraphs. Not only that, but it also completes sentence fragments with a single click. Sentence Rephraser is an ideal and key feature that will not only change the way you express your ideas but also improve your writing quality.
  • Dictionary: Ginger Dictionary or Ginger Define (known in Ginger software) is undoubtedly a powerful, useful tool for every writer. It's an alternative to Grammarly's vocabulary enhancement tool. However, Ginger is far head when it comes to recognizing and providing most perfect synonyms in a better way that even a ten year older student can understand.
  • Text Reader: One unique tool that Grammarly doesn't provide is Text Reader. If you're not a native English speaker and want to learn English with a proper accent; simply, efficiently and naturally then Ginger should be your ultimate choice. Once you ended proofreading the article, select the preferred native accent from US, UK and choose a gender (male or female), change speed and volume of vocalization. Sit back and listen how to pronounce your article correctly.
  • Personal Trainer: One way to improve your writing skills is writing more. But, with a proper trainer, you can expedite the road to be a successful writer. Ginger's Personal Trainer is a must-have tool for every non-native English speaker.
  • Translation Software: Ginger's Translation Software is the cutting edge feature that puts Ginger higher than Grammarly regarding quality writing aid. Currently Ginger supports over 50 languages including Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese and Hindu.
  • Ginger Mobile App: Just like Grammarly, with Ginger Software, you could check grammar and punctuation error verry efficiently with mobile application. So, your SMS messages and documents which are made using your mobile devices will be always grammar-error free!

Ginger is a top notch grammar checking software that is very handy for marketers, writers who are doing business with cross languages and people want to learn English speaking.

Ginger also has browser extensions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.

Also, you can check grammar in MS Word, Powerpoint, and Outlook by downloading the software provided by Ginger.

Text-to-speak is an awesome tool you might want to check out if you didn’t do already.

One of biggest advantages of Ginger grammar checker over Grammarly is that Ginger supports mobile devices (smart phones). So you can rectify your writing flaws instantly by using Ginger mobile keyboard.

One disadvantage of Ginger grammar is, it doesn’t provide an online editor for people who are busy and want to edit articles online.

All in all, Ginger is another top-notch writing aid for every type of employees, people in business, and writers. One of my biggest choices if you asked what my favorite grammar corrector is.

Now let's put those features and tools into a table to see how each writing tools differ from each other.

It depends on various factors. If you want to improve your writing while enhancing spoken English, then you should use Ginger Software for it.

But, if you want a grammar checker, punctuation checker and plagiarism checker for your english writing and content marketing needs, then you should give Grammarly a try.

I would like to note here also that Grammarly doesn’t support local languages currently. But, Ginger Grammar Software does it. So, I know it is overwhelming to choose one between Ginger and Grammarly. However, if you only need a tool to correct English writing errors, I would suggest give Grammarly a try.

Similarly, If you want a good tool to correct language errors across multiple tongues, then I would suggest Ginger. I can’t compare Ginger’s Translate with Google Translate. Because, honestly I have not used it since years. Both Ginger and Grammarly have free trial offers. Therefore, sign up first either Ginger and Grammarly and find what suits well for your needs.


Final Words…

I have used both Ginger and Grammarly tools to assist my English writing and speaking purposes.

Currently, I am using Grammarly because it allows me to check plagiarism before I publish any article and provides reasons why my sentences are incorrect and shows instructions on how to write particular sentences rightfully. So, at last, Grammarly is my English teacher! 😉

    Hello Chamal,

    When I saw this sentence :

    “honestly I have not used it since years”

    I wondered why Grammarly didn’t see it as wrong.

    Not saying Ginger would have found it.

    Maybe I am mistaken. But, in my opinion, saying “since years” is not good English. Better to say “for many years”, “in a long time”, “since last year”, “for the past 2 or 3 years”.

    I’m sure there are other ways that are as good.

    Take note that French is my first language, so I might be wrong.

    Thanks for the review. It helped me to clarify that I choose Ginger because of it’s feature of reading text back to me, to learn about how to pronounce words correctly. I need that.

    Have a great day!

    Philippe

    • Hi Philippe,

      I migrated blog content to another page builder. And have edited content here and there. So, they might have some mistakes. (I didn’t proofread some text btw)

      I see you have chosen Ginger Software over Grammarly.

      To be honest, I have used it first at 2013. So, I don’t know how far they have improved. Currently, I use Grammarly and will update this article with current features, limits etc.

      No, any grammar checker is perfect. I have encountered many mistakes that Grammarly makes while correcting grammar and punctuation.

      Have a great day for you.

      Chamal.

      P.S: sorry for delayed response. That was weekend.
