Overview

Proofreading for English, French, German, Polish, and more than 20 other languages. Check your spelling, grammar and style.
With this extension you can check text with the free style and grammar checker LanguageTool. LanguageTool finds many errors that a simple spell checker cannot detect, like mixing up there/their, a/an, or repeating a word, and it can detect some grammar problems. It supports more than 25 languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Polish, and Russian.

With LanguageTool our aim is to give users a fully-featured grammar checker and proofreader that will enable them to have control and confidence over their content. While LanguageTool is a vital extension for non-native speakers; it’s also smart enough to recognize mistakes that native speakers commonly make and it will improve your writing overall. This grammar and spelling correction works across all variations of common language; distinguishing between U.S. and British English, for instance. LanguageTool also features a personal dictionary for exceptions or words that you might commonly use but that are not found in a conventional dictionary. 

Usage: Just click on "Check" and start proofreading your document. The detected errors will be shown on the sidebar. Select an error and it will be highlighted in the text.

Unlike Grammarly and Ginger, LanguageTool works for many languages and is 100% free and offers many of the same features.

Your privacy is important to us: By default, this extension will check your text by sending it to https://languagetool.org over a securely encrypted connection. No account is needed to use this extension. We don't store the texts you check. In fact, we don't even store your IP address. See https://languagetool.org/privacy/ for our privacy policy.
