Around two years ago I switched my writing AI helper of choice, going from Grammarly to LanguageTool, for many reasons.1

First because of the great quality of suggestions and improvements in my writing suggested by LanguageTool, much better than those offered by Grammarly in my opinion.

Second, because of the various integrations available on common applications I use every day on my preferred operating system at the moment, Fedora Linux. Let’s be honest: Linux support is always at the bottom of the list of priorities for service providers, so it’s very nice to see such a coverage for the same tool in this operating system.

And yes, it also has a handy iOS app with a custom keyboard that I regularly use, too.

And third, because you can self-host the LanguageTool server in your own premises, helping you to keep your writing 100% private. In my case I am not doing this, but I know people who do, and I think it’s fantastic that the option exists.

I’m so happy with LanguageTool that I got myself a LanguageTool Premium plan, and I couldn’t be happier.
