Editors' Review

+
The Internet makes it easier than ever for students to plagiarize term papers, but this application aims to strike fear into the hearts of deceptive students by comparing a document with the Web to find excessive similarities. The user-friendly interface lets you quickly select files for examination, although the trial version only supports one document at a time. The program generates HTML reports, highlighting suspicious passages, and gives you a link to the Web source, so you can check for yourself. Plagiarism-Finder was fairly accurate with passages of seven or more words but didn't work as well with smaller bits of text. Therefore, we feel the program does a good job of catching blatant cases of plagiarism, but can't be called foolproof. Though it may not help finger the most savvy cheats, this app still can serve as a handy weapon for teachers and professors.

"Does not work well!"

December 08, 2009  |  By Sharee1966

 |  Version: Plagiarism-Finder 1.2.2

Pros

Nothing!!!

Cons

This is a German company. When my program did not work, it took me six months to get a reply from them in English. I sent mail in German. I never got a program that worked. I wasted over two hundred dollars.

Summary

The biggest thing is that it is a foreign company, and they were hard to deal with. They never refunded my money, and I never got it to work. They told me to download another version in six months, but then they wanted me to pay for it again.
