UPGRADE news: in October 2017 we carried out an upgrade, to make our tools and service better:
a) We have implemented a new system for calculating the Scorecard for longer texts, which makes it more reliable. See here for details
b) we have also reduced the number of words which can be analysed in the Free versions of the tool. We apologise if this is an inconvenience, but it is necessary to control the demands on the server for our paying users. However, remember that a full month with Text Inspector costs less than twe cups of coffee, on average, so we hope we are still excellent value! Thank you.
Since 2015, Text Inspector has been used by over 140,000 unique users, from 103 countries, and by students and staff at 145 universities and colleges – see a list here. We are used by major publishers such as Cambridge University Press, language schools and many international organisations. Try us, and see for yourself!
