    Can you help me by knowing some online English to Hindi translation sites, I trust you have the ability to put things at right place.



  14. Grammarly is not free. The download is free (as is any download), but before you can use it, you have set up a paid account.

    Or did I miss something?

    • They run on Freemium model. 🙂

  23. Hello,

    I randomly came across your site while looking for a review of Grammarly.

    The 25% discount campaign being run by you was very helpful. It helped save a lot while I was contemplating on whether I should try it despite its high price or not.

    Thanks a lot!!

  25. Dear Ankit,

    You have shared a great source of technical tools for writing skills. I personally use Grammarly. It helps a lot and being a blogger we can not ignore it. New blogger and their community must be thankful to you. Looking forward to your new topics and blog.


  26. I ‘m looking for simple, compound and complex sentence finder in which I will paste a sentence and it will detect whether it is in given three do you know where I can go?

  27. I recommend you to use Grammarly because of the simple fact that it corrects a wide range of errors which the free tools might not accurately do.

    ‘I recommend you use Grammarly’ is the correct way to begin that sentence. The ‘to’ does not belong there.

    Also, none of these that you recommend correct punctuation errors when you combine sentences without using a period at the end of the first one.

  28. Hi Ankit,
    I believe that Grammarly is one of the best Grammar checking tools I have used till today But I will surely check the other ones.
    Thanks for sharing.

  29. Thanks for sharing a list of grammar checkers. I was really in need of this kind of softwares for my writing purposes.

  30. Thank you Ankit

    I am currently using Grammarly. Its been a good app so far. I enjoy using it.

    Just wondering if one can get the best out of it without the premium

    • Hi Akinola,

      Grammarly’s free extension is also worth installing. It checks your copy on almost all the platforms.

      Also, Grammarly’s latest IOS and Android keyboard apps are just amazing. Try them too. 🙂

      • Hello Ankit, I just found new tool for grammar check I would say better than Grammarly. the name of tool is Grammarlycheck

  31. I write novels and my books are traditionally around 250 to 300 pages long. I have tried Grammarly “Supreme” which is considered the best. However, it has limitations of 100,000 characters and 60 pages. As long as you are writing anything with those constraints, you should be okay. However, if you exceed those numbers, there has to be a “workaround”. You must break up your document into part 1, 2, 3 and so on and then re-assemble them when you are finished with Grammarly.

    Is anyone else having these issues? Or this there another approach.

  32. Courtney O'Neill

    What a great article I have found finally, dear author, thank you very much for it! And I would like to add that not so long ago I was looking for some professional rephrase sentence online, but unfortunately I have not found it in the internet at all. And that is why I am really very happy that now I have seen your very helpful and well structured article. And please do not stop to write them, because I am completely sure that they can help to many of other people who are looking for some help as well as me!

  33. Dr. Sukhvir Kaur
