Validating grammar for all paths through spintax

3 replies
Hi guys.

My VA is producing some pretty poor spintax with Magic Article Rewriter, many times it doesn't even pass basic grammatical correctness. I'm looking for a validation tool so he can at least check the spun output for grammar before sending it to me to comb through it by hand.

But using something like sp1n.me to expand his spintax into all variants. You'd think it was as simple as pasting the result of this into MS Word or paperrater.com etc, but the problem is that every text spinner I can find only spins quite randomly (obviously on purpose).

For example:
{Many|Numerous} {individuals|persons} who are not {able|competent} to {find|discover} {ways|options} to pay for their houses and properties {need|must} to {accept|admit|acknowledge} the {fact|truth|reality} that foreclosure {may|may well|may perhaps} be the only {way|means} they could stay away from {further|additional|extra} financial {troubles|predicament|difficulty}.
Obviously you can see why I hate even semi-automatic autospinners like the one my VA is using. But when I put the article containing this sentence into any spinner tool, and try to generate an article with "must to" in it, it very rarely shows up.

Is there a spinning tool out there that checks grammar AND understands spintax? Preferably, a tool that makes actual readable English.

    Instead of paying someone to write crap material for you and then you have to waste your valuable time checking it, it seems to me that you would be better off doing one of 2 things.
    1. Outsource the writing/proofreading to one person with better skills.
    2. Outsource the proofreading so you don't have to check the work you get form your poor quality writer.

    I admit I am biased. I am a writer and a proofreader and I do offer those services.
    However, there are also other ways to get it done if you don't want to spend much money but still get better quality work.

    Let me know if you need more pointers as I know you can't see my links yet.

      Thanks Laurence.

      Yeah, I've been wondering if I'm going about it all wrong. Might be worth paying for better quality content, and diverting my VA towards more productive activities...

      Still, a good automated quality assessment would be a valuable first-pass in any arsenal.

    grammarly.com is one I have heard good things about.
    I never need those things myself but it may be worth a try.
