Hi, there,
Is there any good English checking software which functions are much better than Microsoft Word?
I appreciate it.

Based on the TopTenReview (, the Writer's Workbench was listed the #1. Who has any experience with it? Is this review reliable?

If you mean spellchecking and such Jan 23, 2008

I've never used it myself, but I know many translators use White Smoke. You may want to check it out.

Let's see if White Smoke users have any comments for us...

Edit: I just noticed that there is currently a special offer for this on ProZ.

Maybe you should try this... Jan 24, 2008

Hello there!

I once worked for a news agency and they used WordFinder Grammatik 2. It seemed pretty useful but I never got to use it because I was translating into my mother tongue (Spanish).

Anyway, this is the link:


Good luck.
