One Click Is All You Need

powered by LanguageTool

Regardless of whether you already use LanguageTool, or you’re still looking for a multilingual and free writing assistant, this new feature will come in handy for you.

Fixing Identical Mistakes on LanguageTool
Especially when using quotation marks and apostrophes, this will make your life easier.

Identical Mistakes?

Every writer knows that it is not uncommon to make the same mistakes over and over again. Especially in punctuation, we happen to use the wrong quotation marks or decide not to go for the best apostrophes. Even if you already use a spell checker, you have to go through all the mistakes one-by-one and click each suggestion manually. Can’t this be done any faster? We’ll show you that LanguageTool can now function like a set of dominoes.


How Does LanguageTool Work in General?

LanguageTool, as a multilingual and free writing assistant, is now capable of improving all errors of the same kind with only one click.

But first, let me introduce the tool. It helps you in several programs and as a browser add-on with corrections to spelling, grammar, punctuation, and language style. In the process, all errors are color-coded as follows:

In addition, if you double-click on a word, you’ll get suitable synonyms—that is, alternative words.

LanguageTool - Online Grammar, Style & Spell Checker
LanguageTool is a free online proofreading service for English, Spanish, and 20 other languages. Instantly check your text for grammar and style mistakes.
You can find more information on the homepage.

What Is the New Feature About?

To see how the new function works, it is useful to show a difference from as it was before. Let’s take a look at the following example, in which less favored quotation marks were used.

For certain punctuation suggestions, you can now always choose whether to accept the suggestions individually (blue box) or to fix all errors of this type by clicking the white box.

Tip

It doesn’t matter where you accept the suggestion. When the cursor reaches the bottom of the text, it’ll start again from the top. Please keep in mind that depending on the length of the text, it may take a few moments to scan and potentially improve everything.


Which Errors Can Be Corrected by the New Function?

Currently, the function exists for the following errors:

  • Straight quotation marks instead of curly ones (style choice)
  • Wrong quotation marks (accents, from different languages)
  • Straight apostrophes instead of curly ones

This video shows how practical and simple the feature is. Moreover, we’ll get to see the listed error types in detail. You can also see why it seems like one domino falls after another falls by just one click. Additionally, we encourage you to try out the new shortcut feature.

Click once on the white box and sit back while LanguageTool corrects for you.

Note

Kindly note that the function is currently offered in all versions of LanguageTool (except Google Docs).

We hope the new way of correcting errors will simplify your text writing even more. You can try out the domino effect right now!
