      "As someone that types in a few different languages, grammar and spell checkers can be inconsistent at best in foreign languages. I like this tool so much because it is more robust than the built-in spell checkers of Windows machines. It is nice to see errors that are commonly missed. I like that it is frequently updated so I'm sure I am getting the most current grammar and spellings of languages I am not 100% fluent in."

I worked hours on the paper, but I was not satisfied, however, I was extremely tired. I used Paperrater to check my spelling/grammar and provide some writing suggestions; the paper turned out to be pretty well written after many changes that Paperrated suggested."
