As technology keeps evolving, we keep seeing many new tools on the internet, and all of them have a different purpose and are helpful in a different way. Today we’re talking about a paraphrasing tool, something that’s relatively new on the Internet and still in the process of development, but people already like it a lot.
If you are not sure what exactly is a paraphrasing tool, well, worry not. We’re going to inform you and teach you how to use it, as well as help you decide whether or not it is the right time to use such a service in your current situation. Feel free to read until the end if you are eager to learn more. Let’s begin.
What is a paraphrasing tool?
If you’ve ever worked as a writer, or you had to re-write something during your college days, you probably already know what we’re talking about. If not, here’s a brief explanation. A paraphrasing tool is a tool that helps you automatically re-write something, but with the goal of making the final product as unique as possible, hopefully without any chance of others finding out that it’s a re-written version of another text.
How does it work?
A paraphrasing tool is very easy to use, all you have to do is write or paste a certain text into one of the fields, then click the re-write button and wait for the “conversion” to happen. After that, you can read the converted text and try to find any unwanted grammar mistakes or anything of that kind.
If there aren’t any, well, the software did a great job. Now you have a re-written text that you can use for whatever you want! If you are interested in seeing how this works for yourself, feel free to check out QuillBot.
When should I use this?
We can’t really tell you what the best scenarios for using a re-writing bot are, and it really depends on you, but some interesting examples are when you have a homework on the same subject that you’ve written a few days ago, so instead of having to do it all over again as a new text, simply re-write your older one and submit it as a new one. The same can be done with essays, articles or anything else that should be written on the same subject all over again.
How unique are the re-written texts?
Depending on how sophisticated the bot itself it, the results may vary a lot. Some might be still in development since this is a pretty complicated thing to do, so give them some time before the final version comes out. These kinds of software consist of complicated algorithms that are always striving for the maximum uniqueness percentage, so you can expect anything from 40% to 70% percent.
Some sentences or words cannot be changed because of their meaning, so you can’t really expect a one hundred percent change between the two texts. The best way to understand how paraphrasing tools work is by trying them out a couple of times yourself and then making a decision on whether you want to use them or not.
