Editors' Review

+

Grammarian Pro2 X is a powerful tool to help you ensure all writing you do is polished, no matter what type of program you create it in. There are quite a few options for how to use the multiple features included in this program, so once you learn the interface, you can make the app work to suit your purposes.

Pros

Versatile tools: You can customize the tools in this program so the software checks for just the errors you're concerned with and ignores others. Generally, you can choose to scan for Spelling, Grammar or both together, but you can also be a bit more precise. There are many different writing styles and types included in the program, including Academic, Formal, Legal, Casual, Chat, Common, Technical, and more, and you can adjust these based on what it is you're checking at the moment. You can also go deeper and check off the specific types of errors you'd like the program to point out and uncheck others to suit your purposes.

Quick access: This tool sits right in your top Menu Bar, so you can bring it up quickly just by clicking the icon and selecting the process you'd like it to perform. When you've made your selection, a new window will open with the selected text on the left and a review section on the right where you can see the errors detected, suggestions for how to fix them and an explanation of the error.

Cons

Complicated installation: There are multiple steps involved in installing this program, but nowhere in the installer does it alert you to this. The instructions don't come up automatically, so you have to go looking for them, but you may not even know that you need to do that. The Help that does exist is not terribly clear either, but you can eventually figure it out with some experimenting.

Bottom Line

Grammarian Pro2 X for Mac is a good option for providing universal spelling and grammar guidance and corrections. It's nice to be able to use these tools in any application and on any text, even if the program you're using to write doesn't come with the tools. The many customization options mean you can use this app on all types of writing. You can try it out for free for 6 days, after which you'll have to pay $39.95 for the full version.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Grammarian Pro2 X for Mac 2.09b10.

"Worked for a while and stopped"

October 03, 2014  |  By drlake_blcs

2014-10-03 09:43:58  |  By drlake_blcs

 |  Version: Grammarian Pro2 X 2.09b10

Pros

Provides good insight into grammar and usage.

Cons

My registered copy stopped working in Word. Emailed tech support only to have the email returned as undeliverable. (I used the online form to ask for help)

Summary

When it works, it is good. If you need tech support, forget it! I consider the price I paid for the program as wasted since it not longer works and I finally uninstalled the program.

"Much more stable"

April 15, 2011  |  By AndysCnet

2011-04-15 12:49:28  |  By AndysCnet

 |  Version: Grammarian PRO2 X 2.01

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

None that I can find at the moment

Summary

A big improvement on the earlier versions. I have used it for years and IMHO this is the best version yet. I use it a lot for checking ease of understanding for talks to children and adults - and it never lets me down.

"It works, not always perfect but an improvement"

January 21, 2011  |  By msoucie

2011-01-21 13:22:36  |  By msoucie

 |  Version: Grammarian PRO2 X 2.0

Pros

a useful tool for someone like myself who's prone to sending out badly written replies to postings on the internet

Cons

expensive considering I'm replying to an internet posting
I wish the dictionary would recognize my badly spelled words a little better.

Summary

I like this program most for the fact it slows me down and causes me to reflect more on my writing as I correct my lousy grammar.

"Still crashes in 64 bit mode on my iMac i3 frequently."

January 18, 2011  |  By BioHutch2

2011-01-18 08:08:54  |  By BioHutch2

 |  Version: Grammarian PRO2 X 2.0

Pros

Not much at this point. The ProX version worked most of the time in 32 bit mode and when it didn't crash made good suggestions and ease of use in ingteractive mode.

Cons

Giving wierd choices for suggestions and then frequently crashing, and I had to pay $25 for this poorly performing upgrade?

Summary

Don't try this until you are assured that it will work properly on your computer.

"Excellent concept, need refining."

January 30, 2010  |  By msw66

2010-01-30 06:52:50  |  By msw66

 |  Version: Grammarian PRO X 1.8.6

Pros

Shows incorrect punctuation and grammar errors quickly and gives explanation.

Cons

I think it's a Ram memory hog - program quit unexpectedly a few times it locked up. User interface is a bit confusing. Needs cleaning up. Often chose correct words but marked them as incorrect.

Summary

If it would improve on those areas I would purchase the product - do the demo first!
