Antidote 8

For English Speakers

Antidote is a complete set of software reference tools for writing French. It includes an advanced grammar checker with smart filters, a rich collection of dictionaries, and a set of interactive language guides. Seamlessly integrated with major word processors and email programs, Antidote's tools are available instantaneously right from your text.

Antidote was designed first and foremost for native French speakers. If you can already read French reasonably well, you can use its dictionaries and guides to improve your skills. If you can also write recognizable French, the grammar checker will help you correct and understand your mistakes. Antidote’s interface and documentation are only available in French, but it will work with the English version of any compatible software.

* Software and operating systems marked with an asterisk tend to be renewed frequently. Antidote 8 will be compatible with a reasonable number of versions of these. Compatibility with older versions may no longer be provided to enable compatibility with new versions. 

Updates (Mises à jour) to Antidote 8 are available free of charge.

We are constantly working to adapt Antidote to new word processors. When support for a new word processor becomes available, it will be included at no cost in the periodic software updates downloadable from this site. Updates are continuously made available until the release of a new edition of Antidote.

If you would like to voice your support for your own software and see it made compatible with Antidote, please contact us.
