Trinka is an AI-powered writing assistant that checks your text for grammar, spelling, style, and consistency errors and gives corrective and actionable feedback. It also goes beyond correction and suggests the finest tone and style enhancements. In addition, Trinka checks your writing for biased and sensitive language, gives you tips on concise writing, reduces redundant expressions, writes discipline-specific phrases and terms, and uses academic writing features like hedge words, contractions, and formal English. Moreover, it also checks if your manuscript is publication-ready.

If you are not a native English speaker and make several complex mistakes that are to do with logical construction in English, then an expert proofreader would be beneficial. Trinka can correct thousands of grammatical errors and complex writing issues. However, AI has its limitations. It cannot decipher your intended meaning if the construction is not logical. In contrast, if you have sufficient knowledge of the English language to confidently form logically correct constructs, then Trinka will take care of the remaining issues such as tone, word choice, grammatical constructions, spellings, and much more.

Once you add a word to your dictionary, Trinka will not highlight it as an error.
