Why you should avoid “article rewriter” tools

When trying to put something into your own words for a writing assignment, have you ever been tempted to just let a computer program do it for you?

If you search the internet for “article rewriter”, you’ll find there are plenty of tools available online that allow you to paste in a piece of writing and have it reworded, but are they any use?

We won’t name it, but we visited one and put this phrase into it:

“A rolling stone gathers no moss.”

It took our well-known proverb and returned:

“A drifter assembles no greenery.”

The positive, to be fair to the tool, is that it recognised that “rolling stone” is a metaphor and replaced it with “drifter”, rather than replacing both words and coming back with something like “pirouetting pebble”.

The rest of it is not so good though. Although moss is usually green, it has a different meaning to “greenery”, which is something that implies vibrance rather than the stagnancy we usually associate with moss. Moss is hardly something we “assemble” either.

We don’t think much of these article rewriter tools and prefer to use talented people for our writing contracts. If you think you have what it takes, apply to write for us at Words of Worth today. We look forward to hearing from you!
