Sentence Rephraser for Android Mobile Devices Now Available

As you may or may not know, we released Ginger Sentence Rephraser for Android mobile devices recently. The news was widely distributed in the media, some of the more prominent pickups included:

GigaOm
TechCrunch
CNN Money

The big splash this new tool made is no small feat. It really changes the way you can use your Android to type. Sentence Rephraser analyzes text sentence by sentence to identify more linguistically stylized, enhanced ways of getting the original message across. Enhancement here means that Sentence Rephraser adds synonyms, idioms and missing words to enrich the text, therby adding more depth to the original message and optimizing communication. Sentence Rephraser leverages Ginger’s NLP platform, which is based on a corpus of more than 1.5 trillion sentences from the web, to identify phrases that have similar context to that of the user’s original text. It then presents the most prevalent phrases to the user as options for rewriting the text.

Obviously non-native English speakers will love the ability to write like a native, using local idioms and phrases. But we are confident that even native English speakers who want to quickly write their messages using abbreviations will find value with a tool that transforms “plz” to “please” with a tap on the keyboard.
