✔️ Multiple languages
✔️ Supports browsers
✔️ Supports Word and Docs
✔️ Free sentence rewrites
❌ No rich text editor
❌ Not as advanced as Grammarly
Outwrite is a good alternative to Grammarly, but it’s not as correct as Grammarly, so I recommend using Grammarly, at least for now.
If you are tired of Grammarly and want to get rid of it, Outwrite can be a nice addition to your list.

What you will like in Outwrite
Outwrite review: Sentence rewrites
The first thing I like is the option to rewrite sentences. Although the option is available in the premium plan, you get five free rewrites monthly.
If you have a sentence that you think needs improvement, Outwrite can paraphrase the sentence and suggest a few rewrites to improve it.
Another benefit of Outwrite is that it supports more languages than tools like Grammarly. In total, Outwrite supports eight languages (6 English).
I have not tried languages other than English, but the option is there for others to try. Anyway, here is the list of all available languages:
- English (Australia)
- English (Canada)
- English (UK)
- English (New Zealand)
- English (United States)
- English (South Africa)
Specific error checking
I remember learning in my English class to type on Notepad and fix grammatical issues by yourself. Outwrite has taken that approach.
It allows you to toggle on and off specific suggestion types. For example, if you want to improve your writing skills and want just the spelling suggestions, you can toggle off other suggestions.
This helps you learn to practice and improve your writing skills.
A nice document scoring system
Outwrite’s editor has an excellent document information box that gives you lots of information about the document. The data includes:
- Syllables per word
- Words per sentence
- Readability score
- Grade level
- Reading time
- Speaking time
The box is only visible in the Outwrite’s editor, so you will need to copy the text over to the editor to see the data.
What you won’t like in Outwrite
Not as advanced as Grammarly
Yes, it is not as advanced as tools like Grammarly. I tested both in my Grammarly vs. Outwrite battle, and in total, Grammarly found 15 mistakes, while Outwrite found 9 errors in the same paragraph.
No rich text editing
Their own text editor does not come with rich text editing options, so after typing your text in Outwrite, you will need to set text styling in your end software. However, you can always install an extension and write straight on the page.
I compared Outwrite with the popular grammar checking programs and found out that Outwrite is the second most expensive grammar checker, right after Grammarly.
Other programs, including ProWiringAid, Ginger, and Linguix, are more cost-effective than Outwrite. PorWritingAid, in fact, offers a lifetime subscription plan with all future updates.
Outwrite review: Should you get it?
Alright, so I’m a big user of writing tools. I believe that Outwrite has improved greatly, and it will benefit those who already have some writing experience because it does not disturb like some other writing assistants.
If you are looking for a Grammarly alternative, you should give Outwrite a go.
