Professional grammar service

Hi All,

Could you recommend an app or professional service that can look into your grammatical error?

I have come across :
https://www.grammarly.com/premium

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Many thanks

I've only seen the (impossible to avoid) Grammerly adverts on YTube.
I can't imagine that a USA app would be a reliable way to "Up-level your communications". Maybe premium service offers human interaction.

Alternatively look for a proof-reading service. The gig economy has re-fashioned that profession online too.
I can't recommend a particular website but they usually include reviews from previous clients. You can choose a proof-reader according to the type of writing you want checked.

Thanks, I am using Grammarly premium and it is quite good so far. There is no human interaction though.

I'm curious .. how does it work? Can you submit a document for correction or is it solely applied to text as you type.
Can it cope with tricky text; business or technical jargon, foreign phrases?

The Premium version is perfect.
You can change the tone to business, informal, confident, neutral, etc., many more options.

Once you buy it, you can either have it as an add-on on Word, Outlook, etc. Or you can go to their website and paste your text for correction.

I have also downloaded their Android app that I am currently using.

You have to have at least basic English language skills
The application is not going to read your mind.

Ok. Run what you said there through its options.

I ran it using the application already
It works best when your text is longer than 150 words.
