Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jul 23, 2009

Textanz provides users with a great way to look deeper into writing and ensure it doesn't repeat itself. By going further than a traditional word processor's tools, this simple program will find fans among people who love language.

The program's interface would be pretty hard to manage if not for the short onscreen tutorial. In only a few sentences, users are run through the various tabs that take up this program and are given enough direction to begin. If you are still confused, there is also an excellent Help file waiting. Checking our writing was a simple matter of opening a file or pasting work from the clipboard. From there users navigate various tabs to see the results of their work. The Phrase Frequency tab breaks down each phrase used more than once and lists how many times it was used. The Concordance Tab showcases unique words used and lists their frequency. Wordforms lists unique words, word length, and its dispersion. The Summary Tab lists things like total words, reading difficulty, average sentence length, longest and shortest word used, and more. The program boasts many features, and one of the best is the ability to click on any word in the list and be taken immediately to its location in the text. Another are the charts that can be run based on the calculations in each tab.

Writing fanatics will not have to run through the program's 40 free uses to discover that its excellent directions and fantastic results create a great tool for writers.

Developer's Description

Textanz is a really unique and must-have tool for everybody involved in writing texts. This program analyzes all types of text content and provides you with a list or dictionary of the words, phrases, and grammar forms, and their frequency of use within the text. The information you receive from a Textanz analysis enables you to check for excessive use or repetition of words or phrases within any document. Textanz provides a vital editing function that is missing from most standard grammar-check and editing programs.
