Paraphraser.io is a popular paraphrasing tool. However, despite what the name says, there are also a bunch of content optimization tools other than the paraphraser available on this platform that you can use.
If you haven’t used this website before, you may be a little unsure about how well the tools work and the type of pricing/registration that you have to go through.
In this Paraphraser.io review, we’re going to be looking at some of the various tools provided by Paraphraser.io as well as their pros and cons. To start off, we’ll begin with the main offering of the platform i.e., the paraphrasing tool itself.
Tools Offered by Paraphraser.io
As we’ve mentioned earlier, Paraphraser.io is a popular name when it comes to paraphrasing tools. And it’s not without good reason.
Since this is a critical and unbiased review, we’re going to mention both the good sides of this tool as well as the bad ones. Let’s look at the downsides first.
To begin with, the main con that you are going to have to deal with when using this tool is the number of ads in the free version. Although it is understandable to have some ads around the interface when using a free website, there are just a lot of them on Paraphraser.io.
Secondly, another downside that you have to work with when using this paraphrasing tool is the tight input capacity of 500 words. That is a little limited as compared to other similar tools available online. Even if you opt for the premium plan, you’ll only be able to increase it to 1,000 words.
That is about it for the cons. Let’s look at the good parts now.
Although this is a fair and unbiased review, we won’t be committing any sort of excess if we want to say that the paraphrasing tool by Paraphraser.io is one of the most intelligent and excellent ones available online. We’ve used plenty of paraphrasers, and a lot of them pretty much wreck the context and meaning of the entered content.
However, that is not an issue with Paraphraser.io…except sometimes if you’re using the ‘Standard’ mode.
…which brings us to the next thing we liked about this tool i.e., the multiple modes.
There are a total of four modes that you can use. Two of these modes can be used for free whereas two are paid only. Their names are as follows:
- Creative (Premium only)
- Smarter (Premium only)
You can choose between these four modes depending on the type of results you want to get from the tool. To get a better idea about how each mode functions, you can try paraphrasing some random text using them one-by-one.
- Intelligent working
- Can be used for free and without signing up
- Multiple modes
- File uploading supported
- Multiple languages available
- Lot of ads in the free version
- 500-word limit for free users
The grammar checker offered by Paraprhaser.io is a decent enough tool that you can use for checking grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors in your content. Let’s look at how it works before moving on to discuss its pros and cons.
So, to use this tool, you first have to import your content to the input box. You can do this either by direct typing/copy-pasting or by uploading a file from your system’s storage.
Once the content is in the box, you have to run the captcha and click on the ‘Check Grammar’ button. This will begin the checking process.
After the process is complete, the errors in your content will be underlined in different colors. You can click on each one of them and select the correct suggestion from the menu that pops up.
And that is pretty much what you have to do as far as the working goes. Now let’s move on to some of the pros and cons of this tool.
The thing that we liked about this tool was that it does not seem to have a word limit. We entered almost 3,000 words in there, and the tool checked it all without any worries.
There is also an option that you can use to directly upload files from your device. This can make things quick for you, and save you from the hassle of direct typing/copy-pasting.
The downsides of this tool, on the other hand, are that it has a lot of ads around the interface, and it does not conserve the meaning of the formatting of the uploaded text.
- Quick working
- Multiple languages supported
- No input limit
- File uploads supported
- No formatting conservation
- Many ads around the interface
Although there are some other tools offered by this platform as well, we are going to stop after discussing this one. We do want to keep this review brief, and discussing these three tools will give us a good idea of whether this platform should be used or not.
So, moving on, we have the plagiarism checker by Paraphraser.io. Like the other tools on this platform, the plagiarism checker also comes loaded with ads around the interface (for free users). It has a limit for a 1,000 words per query for unpaid users, which can be increased to 5,000 words for premium ones.
The working of this tool is simple enough. To use it, all you need to do is enter your content in the input field and then run the captcha. After that, you have to click on the ‘Check Plagiarism Button’ to start the process.
Once the process is completed, you will see the exact percentage of uniqueness and duplication in your content as well as a sentence-wise breakdown. The matched sources and their respective percentages will also be shown below the sentence-wise results.
- Accurate working
- Provides sentence-wise breakdown
- Provides exact matched sources
- Many ads around the interface
- Free users can only add 1,000 words
Here are the pricing details for this platform. It should be kept in mind that there is no premium plan for each of the tools. Rather, there is just one plan that you can buy for the whole platform.
Paraphraser.io Review – The Verdict
Now that we have looked at some of the tools offered by this platform, we can give a verdict on whether or not it’s worth using.
First of all, we have to consider the number of ads that you are going to have to deal with when using this tool. For a lot of people, this many ads can be a deal breaker. Others, however, can be a lot more tolerant.
Nevertheless, despite the number of ads that you have to deal with when using this platform, we have to be fair and say that the tools themselves are quite excellent and accurate. They can do their jobs pretty well, and they can be relied on by their users.
