Your Own Personal English Editor: Grammarly

CPAs create plenty of documents in Word or other text editors. Like other professionals, we also create lots of emails. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a personal English editor as we work? That’s what Grammarly software is.

You can add Grammarly to Outlook, and it critiques your words as you type (and offers suggested changes).

I use Grammarly to review my blog posts before they are published. And recently I have started using the program to critique language in audit reports. (I never realized how often I write in passive voice.) Of course, Grammarly only makes recommendations, so the final choice of words and punctuation are up to you.

Here’s a screenshot of the program when used from their website:

Grammarly does offer a trial account, so give it a go. I think you’ll like it. The cost is $139.99 per year.
