    Is there any software to check grammar?

    I have a website for articles. Is there some free software to check grammar of the articles users publish on my site? It is really time consuming to read all articles attentively. Frankly, I am getting frustrated after working with about ten of themů

    If you have Microsoft Word, the grammar check on that is pretty reasonable. OpenOffice doesn't have a built-in grammar checker, but an extension that seems to be quite popular is After the Deadline (disclaimer: I haven't used this so I don't know how good it is).

    But beware! Automated grammar checkers should only ever be used for a first pass of a document, and should never be used instead of a real person reading and checking through. There are plenty of times when even the best automated grammar checker will give false positives (ie, will tell you there's a mistake when it's actually correct), and many, many more where it will miss real errors. If you rely on grammar checkers, your articles will still be littered with mistakes – there really is no substitute for reading through them, except for paying someone else to read through them!

    I too think the only free option available is Microsoft Word, but even then I don't think depending on it completely would be good.

    Grammar and spell check any text, correct documents, find grammar and spelling mistakes, and ... One of the leading programs out there is WhiteSmoke.

    For example in this part of sentance "The paid and trial version has about 2000" (continues), the paid is underlined and above it is written nonrecreational/repeated word. I don't think there is any mistake in that word there.

    Another one:
    "This includes the option to change at a specific time period". Here also, specific is underlined with repeated word. I changed the sentance to during a specific time period and it again says specific as repeated word. Also most of the words that are used in different niches are underlined and similar word in the traditional dictionaries are given as replacements. Like mbps (megabytes/sec), adsense etc.

    I can give you lot more examples. But i have to run it again for that.

    Many thanks for the examples.

    Does WhiteSmoke flag sentance or accept the incorrect word?

    For single words I just use google. It probably has the best guesser for my not even close spelling. Full pages I use word.

    Google translator only correct the spellings not the grammatical mistakes. I am using "Polish my writing" now a days to correct grammatical mistakes. Hope you also get help from this.
