Antidote 10

The best writing assistance software

Advanced Corrector with Smart Filters

In a single operation, Antidote’s corrector flags a wide variety of errors: from capitalization and verb agreement to unwelcome commas and redundancies. Hover over an error to see suggested corrections and see their explanations pop up in a tooltip, then click to confirm them. After correcting spelling and grammar, move on to typography and style, where you will be warned about any repeated words or commonplace verbs. Even dates and numbers can be flagged thanks to the 200 smart filters that highlight relevant passages. No software has ever given you so much power to refine your writing.

A More Powerful and Inclusive Antidote

User-Friendly Tooltips with Commands

Tooltips now contain possible actions (Correct and Ignore in the example below) and error diagnoses are now displayed more clearly.

Display of Bold, Italic and Emojis!

Not only does Antidote display bold and italic, it also recognizes them. This allows Antidote to better analyze self-referential terms, allowing for improved correction.

New Gender Neutrality Filter

The gender neutrality filter flags elements in the text that can contribute to a more equitable representation of men and women such as job titles and terms of address.

More Precise Analysis of New Detections

Thousands of lexical and syntactic refinements make for improved correction.

New Readability Filter

This new filter gives the Antidote readability score between 0 (very difficult to read) and 100 (very easy to read) and underlines the elements in the text that can be modified to improve the score (long sentences, rare or foreign words, abbreviations, etc.).

An Unprecedented English-French Dictionary

Translation of every word, expression and proverb

The definitions dictionary displays more than 800 000 translations of the various meanings of every word, expression and proverb. In English, more than 8000 new words and expressions such as binge-watch, facticide and hoverboard have been added, as well as 117,000 synonyms and 25,000 combinations.

Translation of the combinations

In an unprecedented feat, 1.7 million combinations have been translated from French to English and from English to French.

Addition of the English antonyms dictionary

The new antonyms dictionary with its 125 000 opposite words completes our full range of English dictionaries.

New Feature of Antidote 10 v2

Antidote now supports dark mode on macOS!

Antidote works with dark mode on macOS. With this option, white and light grey are replaced with black and dark grey colours. This more subdued interface reduces eye strain and makes it easier to concentrate. Antidote’s windows are more understated but still provide their rich content.
