Spelling, grammar, dictionary, and more.

Overview

Grammarian contains an arsenal of professional writing tools to combat those embarrassing writing errors that everyone tends to make, a universal interactive spelling checking, grammar checking, dictionary, thesaurus, autocorrect, and autotype tool that works with virtually every program on your computer.

What's new in Grammarian Pro

Version 3.1.0:
New:
  • Grammarian feature as a background app -- Removes the Grammarian PRO3 menu and dock.
  • New Grammarian PRO3 v3.1 Spelling/Grammar Service update with fast checking speed. Grammarian's new v3.1 Spelling/Grammar Service now supports the highest level macOS NSSpellServer CheckString API.
  • Specialized Install Preference pane - Features spelling/grammar compatibility service installs.
  • Document Check HTML Clipboard support. Browsers and editors such as Firefox export character formatting and graphics only via the html format.
  • Licenses Window: Site license maintenance mode for site licenses.
  • Document Check - Use RTFD and nsstring format instead of TEXT clipboard format for apps such as Ulysses and Bear Notes.
  • Use RTFD and NSString format instead of RTF text clipboard format for special exported clipboard format character encoding.
  • Use best clipboard conversion to preserve graphics and character encoding formatting depending on the exported clipboard content. TEXT to RTFD, RTF to RTFD, HTML to RTFD.
  • Customizable Personal Phrase Dictionary explanation comment text strings.
  • Document Check Window Explanation View font size popup menu (right side of view).
Fixed:
  • Buffer overrun on sentence parse
  • Interactive Popup Window - Control A -- Add.
  • Paste changes default button -RETURN Key- now works.
  • Paste Changes Sheet Window - Pop-up menu Normal Paste and Special Paste pop-up button index off by 1
  • Interactive Checking suggestions produced an inaccurate display whenever the total of suggestions delivered was greater than ten:
  • Input Menu issues that slowed down typing when the Grammarian app is not running.
  • Grammarian PRO3 Help.
  • Document Check window display text encoding bug.
  • Grammarian PRO3 download dmg license agreement errors.
  • Grammarian PRO3 X bug/text errors.
  • Grammarian PRO3 Spelling/grammar service first checks for whether main Grammarian app is running. This prevents slowdown when Grammarian app isn't running.
  • Grammarian PRO3 Uninstaller display restart window after full uninstall.
  • Rare crash - Activation window - dictionary was not initialized.
  • AutoCorrect dictionary update.
  • Spelling engine double-metaphone bug.
  • Preference Window Interactive Checking - Mute All - button.
  • Parse crashes - overrun buffer.

Grammarian PRO3 is the best yet and is still the epitome of proofreading tools. I'm ecstatic about this upgrade.

Someone recommended this as an alternative to Grammarly. So I tried it out. This is awful. Typing slows down to a crawl (on an 2018 MacBook Pro). It finds far less issues than Grammarly (or Pro Writing Aid), and the way the GUI displays information makes it hard to work with (also GUI looks very dated).

This is a fake review. Grammarian PRO3 was released less than 4 weeks ago. How could it be outdated? You must be reviewing Grammarly and not Grammarian PRO3. Grammarly is AWFUL.

Version 3 looks amazing and finally a replacement for Spell Catcher which I had been using since it since it was called Thunder 7. This version of Grammarian is 64-bit so maybe I’ll finally be able to upgrade to Catalina as losing Spell Catcher was a major worry. This pup is fast too. While no upgrade discount from version 2, it is on sale for awhile so I’m happy to support the developer.

Been living without Spell Catcher and using Grammarian Pro under Catalina now for about a month and have to say, I’m very happy with this application as a superb substitute for Spell Catcher.

I love the total system wide integration. And it works as well as advertised. The only feature I'd like to see added would be a plagiarism checker.

As a college instructor, I must review more than 100 papers every two weeks. Grammarian is my go-to choice for catching errors I might miss after hours of reading content. Yes, the university subscribes to two automated systems, but those SaaS apps and Grammarly are less accurate. When I had a problem after upgrading to a new MacBook Pro, I had random crashed. The problem turned out to be easy to fix thanks to good tech support. Because only one or two papers were crashing during "AutoMark" I failed to realize only spelling errors were crashing the app - there was a corrupt dictionary file. I am going to buy another license for an iMac. I look forward to future updates that are 64-bit so they avoid any warnings from Apple.

I wonder who would spend 50 $ (well, they ask '49,95', which is already A SHAME, a way to insulte the intelligence of the audience!) for something we can't even try (and that most probably would be not less presumptuous than Grammarly!)

When you download and instal the software, it instals itself with an initial 7-day TRIAL period. So, indeed, you *can* try all of its features before deciding whether to buy it.

AFAIK, Grammarian Pro is the only grammar-checker that integrates directly into the MacOS, and allows you to check both spelling and grammar 'as-you-type' across all your apps - including Mail, Pages, Scrivener, and others. You can set specific preferences for the individual apps, so it can, for example, check your writing differently in Mail than it does in Scrivener.

As far as the pricing goes, I agree that $50 is a relatively high price in today's market - specially as app prices seem to be getting lower and lower. However, compare that to the price of its main competitor, Grammarly: that is a subscription-ware package, where you'd be paying in excess of $100/year...

It’s all on our website folks. Usually, an insult, and shame, is to not know the facts before engaging the mouth. See our website: https://linguisoft.com/index.html


1. From our website home page: The Grammarian PRO2 product is available as a Mac download-only app. The download is a 7 day free trial commercial demo. Buy a registration license to unlock the demo into a full non-expiring licensed copy.

2. Grammarian PRO2 (all versions) has been the same price for 18 years. Before the year 2000, Grammarian was $40, since 1984. Grammarian PRO2 has been published for over 34 years.

3. Grammarian PRO2 is not subscription based. Buy it once and own it.

4. Currently, we also provide a free online demo. So, we have TWO free tryout demo models. See details here: https://linguisoft.com/index.html

5. The price will definitely go up soon folks. So, get it now.
