Checking your writing for consistency is an important part of the editing process. Consistency is an important aspect of writing professionally. Our free copy editing software
will check your writing for consistency of spelling, hyphenation, capitalisation, and more.
If your document contains inconsistencies in spelling and usage, it will create a poor impression among readers who notice them. If you use 'colour' in one place but 'color' in another then people will notice this inconsistency in your writing.
Find spelling inconsistencies
There are over 1,700 spelling differences between UK english and US english, with Canadian english sitting somewhere precariously between the two. It is easy to mix spelling from the UK and the US. Our spelling consistency software
automatically finds and highlights where you have used inconsistent spelling.
Find hyphenation inconsistencies
Inconsistent use of hyphenation can make a document appear less professional. If you use 'long-term' in one place later use 'long term' then this can reflect badly on your writing. Of course, it is not always a mistake to use a hyphen in one place but not in another. For instance 'long-term plan' and 'in the long term' would be correct. However these tend to be the exceptions rather than the rule. Our free hyphenation consistency checking software
will highlight possible consistencies in your writing so that you can easily check for errors. Inconsistent use of hyphens is a very frequent error, over 60% of randomly sampled documents have some form of hyphenation inconsistency.
Find capitalisation inconsistencies
Some people like to argue about whether words like 'Yoga' should be capitalised or not, but what's sure is that capitalisation inconsistency reflects badly on your professionalism as a writer. Our capitalisation consistency software
helps you to find and eliminate those annoying inconsistencies. Of course there are cases where this is valid, such as March and march, as a noun meaning the month or a verb done by the army, but these are the exceptions rather than the rules.
