Reviews

"StyleWriter acts as a professional editor for anyone who needs to write reports, proposals or press releases. For writing punchy, effective, communicative text, even with your own whimsical style, look no further."
—Good Software Guide


"I sent my first book to Random House. They told me it was the first draft they had ever received that didn't need editing. I'm afraid I didn't tell them I'd used StyleWriter."
—Author of text books


"Like having the Chicago Manual of Style at your fingertips... StyleWriter is undoubtedly useful for anyone who writes. It takes the hard slog out of editing, and draws your attention to stylistic faults you probably didn't know you had."
—The Manual


"Editors charge about $50 to polish writing. Yet StyleWriter does 80 per cent of the editor's work. I reckon I've saved the cost of the program by running it through just a few articles."
—Freelance Journalist


"Who can tell if my business plan would have succeeded without editing with StyleWriter. All I know is everyone who read it said it made a refreshing change to read such a clear and well-presented document."
well-presented document."
—Small Business Owner


"No sales literature goes out of the Marketing department without passing the StyleWriter test. It must get excellent ratings from StyleWriter or it's not good enough."
—Marketing Director


"StyleWriter especially impressed me in flagging only a handful of false errors that are common with grammar checkers. Its advice was intelligent, and it came across as a practical and effective aid to good clear writing."
—PC Plus


"I love StyleWriter. I am a life-long journalist who spent most of his career as an award-winning reporter on daily newspapers from California to Florida. I spent 14 years on the copy desk of one of America's biggest dailies. StyleWriter gives me an extra set of eyes and offers a backup to my own editing.

To be honest, I initially had qualms about recommending a software program that theoretically could take business away from me. But as I've used it, I see how dependent it is on interaction from the user. It guides you rather than does the editing for you."
—David Nickell, Professional writer and editor
