Checking Your Work

While you can’t automate content creation, you can automate a very important part of it – editing and checking grammar and spelling.

Not everybody is a great writer or proofreader, but spelling and grammar mistakes make you look bad and cost you trust. There are programs that not only clean up your mistakes (like the spellcheck on your Word program), but also programs that can offer ways to clean up your text.

Automated editing programs can identify overly long sentences for you, suggest simpler words and phrases, and provide you with dictionaries, thesauruses and other useful tools to help you write better.
