PaperRater is a free resource, developed and maintained by linguistics professionals and graduate students. is used by schools and universities in over 46 countries to help students improve their writing. combines the power of natural language processing (NLP), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, information retrieval (IR), computational linguistics, data mining, and advanced pattern matching (APM). We offer the most powerful writing tool available on the internet today.

Before we could offer we had to overcome large challenges related to computational linguistic design and development, handling transliteration variation; ethnolinguistic identification; document classification and entity extraction; name parsing and regularization; duplicate document recognition, plagiarism detection, clustering, and prioritization; automatic entity extraction and entity resolution.

As part of the development process, we put together a team of computational linguists and subject matter experts to develop a core Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine using statistical and rules-based NLP to extract language evidence from essays and term papers and robustly translate that evidence into accurate codes. We hope to showcase some of our technology at a later date.
