LanguageTool is a free and open-source, cross-platform spell and grammar checker which can be used as an extension in LibreOffice/OpenOffice,[3] Vim,[4][5] Emacs,[6] Firefox[7] and Thunderbird,[8] or as a stand-alone desktop application. Also, it can be integrated on websites.[9]

Started by Daniel Naber for his diploma thesis[10] in 2003 (then written in Python), it now has around 10 regular commiters and supports more than 20 languages.

Based on error detection patterns, rules are created and then tested for a given text.

WikiCheck[edit]

LanguageTool has a community website for checking Wikipedia content.[11] It could be a single article, the content of a recent change or a small part of Wikipedia.
