Projects / LanguageTool


LanguageTool is a style and grammar checker that currently supports English, Polish, German, French, Dutch, and other languages to a different degree. It scans the words and their part-of-speech tags for occurrences of error patterns, which are defined in an XML file. More powerful error rules can be written in Java.

          Release Notes: Many updates for the error detection rules for English, French, Catalan, Ukrainian, Portuguese, German, and Breton have been added.
