There are many situations when you would appreciate a full-time proof-reader. No matter it is a hyper hyper (hands in the air Scooter fans 😉 ) important mail for your boss, an urgent reply to a colleague, a contract or a love letter for a crush – probably you want no grammar mistakes.
Have you ever wondered whether you are typing a word correctly while you were writing a mail or a blog post? If you are a non-native English speaker – like me – I’m definitely sure you’ve done it at least once…
If you run a WordPress site you’ve probably familiar with the plugins that offers you grammar check, but if you listen to me you would give a chance to a browser extension, called Grammarly. Grammarly is a ‘free writing assistant’ that helps you to avoid grammatical mistakes, comma splices, adjective order and wordiness – nearly anywhere on the web including Facebook, Linkedin, Gmail or your blog.
The easiest way is to type ‘grammarly *browser name* extension’ to your commonly used search engine. (I use Chrome so this is how I will show it.)
Select the one result that leads you to the browser’s extensions/add-ons
Click on Add to Chrome
The extension is now added, but you’ll need a log in. When it is added to your browser it automatically opens grammarly.com to set up your profile. Now you can personalise your account or you can Skip it if you wish – I provided the few info they asked for.
For this you’ll need to give an email address, a password and your name. It is not required to tick the small box, only if you wish to receive promotional emails.
Choose the free or the premium plan
And here you are: Grammarly is added to your browser, so anytime you type something to your browser so you can continue to type with confidence.
TAKE NOTE: You can check your documents as well if you visit your Grammarly homepage and upload your document – or you can add Grammarly to Windows.
