Pros: It works with a lot of languages. It has better visual helpers than Grammarly. And the free version is more than enough. AND you can use the Chrome extension WITHOUT creating an account. 😃

Cons: There is nothing I don't like about this app.

It is at least as good as any other grammar/spell checking software I know of

Comments: I like to run the text pieces I review through a few softwares, just to be sure no mistakes go unnoticed, and also to become aware of issues that pass through my attention. Language Tool is one of the last softwares I use in this queue checks, and to my surprise it sometimes catches a few mistakes that go through both my own attention and also the checks of the similar softwares used before it. I believe no grammar checking tool will ever make a thorough multiple check obsolete, but Language Tool is certainly one of the steps I am sold on maintaining on my 'queue' for the foreseeable future

Pros: Very useful for grammar checking any pieces of text that are important or really need to be flawless. I believe that, for most users that do not need a strictly flawless proofreading, Language Tool alone is more than enough. I consider it to be at least as good as any other single similar tool, only being beaten by multiple independent checks through different softwares or readers

Cons: Although I have no specific issues with this tool, and I think it takes care of most evident needs users have when using it, I believe it is still not at the level of polishment of a few other classic softwares, where they predict and address issues that are not evident, but that are common to most users, but that become more evident to professionals on that specific topic. I believe the next step for this tool would be the inclusion of a type prediction feature/algorithm.

Comments: I use Language Tool as a supplemental grammar-checking tool. It gives me the ability to proofread my work in several languages.

Pros: As a multilingual writer, I produce material in English, Italian, and Spanish. When I use the Language Tool, I can easily switch from American to British English. I have clients in both parts of the world, so differentiating between the two languages is imperative. Also, this software allows me to proofread my work in Italian and Spanish with diverse options to choose verbiage.

Cons: I am currently using this program for free because I use other grammar-checking tools. For the best price, you must sign up for a yearly subscription. The monthly and 3-month subscription fees are overpriced.

Comments: It’s a fantastic alternative who are familiar with Grammarly. The free version of this app is more enough when compared to the other high monthly subscription market available software. Just give a try on this cool app and make your outputs without gramma issues.

Pros: When we reached some level, we can’t make silly mistakes when we deal with professional matters, and Language tool is the best solution to take care of these matters. It’s really helpful for me during my emails, project submissions, report makings to just ensure the grammatical errors and other stuff. It's freely available and not much as complicated to use it. We can install the plug-in for Microsoft Word and thereafter we are free to simple grammar issues on our daily outputs.

Cons: I did not notice any negative signs of these cool app. Hope more future updates should improve the service into the next level.
