Ginger is one of the best grammar checking software options on the market. It packs loads of functionality into a single service at a price that’s affordable to boot. We loved the added features like translation, the sentence rephraser, and built-in dictionary. The text reader is another useful tool that helps refine written content. Ginger’s freemium plan is good for those with small amounts of weekly content to check, and the premium plan is reasonably priced as well.
