From Editor Software:
Award winning copy-editing software for writers that instantly transforms your writing into plain English - a style that is clear, concise and readable.
StyleWriter teaches you to write in the style of top authors and journalists by checking every document for thousands of style and English usage faults. Ten times more powerful than any other writing aid, StyleWriter improves your writing style instantly.
Designed by journalists, editors and business writing tutors, StyleWriter gives you the skills of a good editor. Simply click the StyleWriter button in Microsoft Word's or WordPerfect's toolbar (or any clipboard text) to launch a check for thousands of faults and bad habits found in writing. Trimming the excess words, simplifying and clarifying your style, checking for good English usage -- editing is easy with StyleWriter.
StyleWriter is not a grammar checker. Grammar checkers try to show you how to write a correct sentence by analyzing each word for its part of speech and then accepting sentences only if the parts of speech are in the right order. StyleWriter is not a grammar checker and does not parse sentences. Instead it compares your text to the world's largest database of style and usage issues. It finds the poor style habits you can change to improve the quality of writing.
StyleWriter works by teaching you to write in plain English - the style underlying all great writing. Don't think plain English is simplistic or patronizing. Plain English is clear English. Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck are writers with a simple, clear and direct style. Time, Newsweek, Scientific America and the Washington Post - just about every successful publication - owe their popularity and readership to adopting a clear, readable style.
StyleWriter brings together a host of special features unlike any other writers software to help you improve the style and readability. Its proofreading tools find many errors missed by Word's spell checker and grammar checker. You can even customize StyleWriter to add your own proofreading and editing checks.
