What do you do to double check your grammar and to spell check your hubs ?
English is not my native language but I'm trying to improve it through writing and speaking with native speaker. I want to know if you know any way to find either a proof reader or a website better than spellchecker for grammar.
I currently use http://www.spellchecker.net/spellcheck/ to double check grammar and spelling error but it seem it not enough.
The best method I have found is to write the original copy using Microsoft Word which has both spell checking and grammar help along with synonyms and a thesaurus. It is a simple matter to copy and paste the edited version into your Hub. Yes it isn't free and it isn't perfect, but it is worth every penny and has so many other functional possibilities.
The best thing to spell check and grammar check your writings is using Microsoft word it has all necessary facilities to improve your writings as my friend Bozoplay mentioned. I also was in search of any software for that and ultimately settled with Word. It is doing better for me.

Does bad grammar and spelling bother you?I don't expect everyone to be an English professor, but for goodness sake people, use some punctuation and a built in spell-check! This is primarily aimed at forums, hubs, and places like YouTube comments. Places where people could take the time to read over...

I'm sure you folks are too smart to do this, but I just did! I misspelled the word "depression" in my latest Hub! Taught me a good lession: go slower. Now it's there and there is nothing I can do about the URL. I did edit the title to correct.

I was looking over someone's profile page the other day and noticed a misspelled word in one of their summaries. It was clear what the author was trying to say so I just moved on to another hub, happily oblivious. Then today, I was writing a new hub and got to the summary part and worried that I...
