For the mistakes in life, and at work
How cool would it to be to have a proofreader right next to your desk? No, not the one in your word processing program; a real live human proofreader? Pretty cool, right? While you probably cannot afford a full-time, human proofreader, Nurtz offers you the next best thing.
Editing on demand
If you use Slack (and soon Skype too) you can message a Nurtz bot to proofread your email, abstract, or any other piece of text. As soon as it’s ready, typically in five to ten minutes, the Nurtz bot will message you back an edited copy. The term “bot” can be a bit confusing, however. While they use the term “bot,” they really mean automated response as your text will be proofread by an actual human, not just a computer.
Saves you money
two to too
Having your text proofread by a human and not a machine, ensures that your text is accurately corrected. Humans often catch mistakes that word processors miss.
The most common mistakes are words that are spelled correctly, but not used correctly.
The word processor sees the word is spelled correctly and assumes you have used it correctly; whereas a human proofreader sees that you have misused the word and corrects it for you. A perfectly proofread copy is an absolute must in the business world and Nurtz is a great alternative to hiring a freelancer, especially if you frequently use Slack or Skype.
From within Slack, and Skype soon too
If you use Slack, you can send your text over to a Nurtz bot without leaving the Slack platform. Simply add the Nurtz bot to your contacts, message them your text, and they’ll get back to you with your corrected text, helping you look like a proofreading genius.
The same will be true with Skype, once this feature launches. We can all use someone to help refine and polish our text from time to time, and Nurtz gets it done in a hurry.
Nurtz offers simple pricing and none of your personal information is shared with editors. Your content is only shared for the express purpose of correcting. The first 100 words are completely free, after that it’s $0.02 per word. Have you used Nurtz to proofread something?
