Smarten Up Your Writing
Writing and reading are such everyday issues that we sometimes fail to see how much they actually influence our lives. Now, how can you write as accurately as possible using appropriate terms? And how do you keep the company's linguistic brand coherent? How can one remember what's been said about the subject already so as to avoid any unnecessary reiteration? How come the familiar text processing tools don't work in a given DTP application?
More Than 20 Years of Assisting Writers
Lingsoft has been delivering high-quality proofing tools since 1989. With Microsoft Office these are used all over the Nordic countries and Germany. Lingsoft proofing tools are grouped into common-language, topic-specific and customised checkers:
Our common-language proofing tools are best known from being included in Microsoft Office for more than a decade, and are additionally available for various operating systems (as Windows, Mac OS X and Linux) and applications (for example Adobe InDesign and InCopy).
Examples of topic-specific tools are our add-ins for Microsoft Office in the governmental, technical and medical fields, also available as modules for software integration and software-as-a-service.
Customized proofing tools are a vehicle to deploy Lingsoft's Language Management concept for corporate brand language, and are regularly maintained in the scope of a service-level agreement.
Besides checking spelling and grammar, our proofing tools include hyphenation and thesauri for various languages.
