More AI tools for writers

Recently we looked at ChatGPT to redraft our text. I asked people to send me other recommendations.

DeepL Write

One student reported using DeepL Write as an alternative to ChatGPT.

This tool has two columns side by side. You cut and paste your original text into the column on the left and then choose your style from the drop down box. The choices are between simple, business, academic or technical.

The results are sometimes convoluted texts or texts that are too formal. Look carefully at what they suggest before deciding whether to accept the results or not. Here are three examples from students’ work. See what DeepL Write did to improve them.
