QuillBot is a popular paraphrasing tool that uses AI to rewrite your content. There are many reasons you might want to rewrite your content.
For example, you might want to write a better version of the content, using more synonyms to switch your content up a bit and make it more unique.
Instead of using the same common words throughout your article, QuillBot will automatically switch some of those words and rephrase some sentences.
It will also give you additional paraphrasing suggestions that aren’t automatically included, but which you can include with the click of a button.
You may also want to rephrase content if it doesn’t pass a plagiarism checker such as Copyscape. It may even be similar to content you yourself wrote in the past, but QuillBot will switch up the content so that it looks unique.
Since QuillBot uses AI, the end result will look very natural, and it won’t look like a bot spun it.
QuillBot actually has three tools:
- The Rephraser: This tool rephrases your sentences and gives you synonym and rephrasing suggestions.
- The Summarizer: This tool summarizes your content with some rephrasing. Essentially, it helps you take out fluff content that isn’t essential to the meaning you want to convey.
- The Grammar Checker: This tool checks your content for grammar mistakes.
However, not only does the free version have a character limit, but the paid version has a character limit as well. That makes QuillBot not such a good option for really long articles of over 10,000 characters (those are characters, not words).
You also can not upload multiple articles for writing at once, which makes QuillBot a less attractive option if you want to quickly rewrite multiple blog posts.
In addition, QuillBot’s rephrasing tool is somewhat of a hit and miss. That is especially true when you keep hitting the redo option, which allows you to get a new paraphrasing result if you did not like the first one.
Sometimes, the paraphrased results can seem somewhat unnatural and even comical. At other times, the results will be absolutely amazing.
One more thing: QuillBot’s grammar checker tool is still in beta mode, and it has a lot of room for improvement. If you want to check your spelling and grammar, you would be better off with another tool.
In this article, I will go over some alternatives to QuillBot you can use for rephrasing, spinning, and grammar checking. I will include both free and paid alternatives.
Let us get into it.
1. Jasper AI
Jasper AI was earlier known as Conversion AI, or even Jarvis. It is one of the best alternatives to QuillBot for generating unique, natural-sounding content. You can paste an article you wrote into the tool, and it will rewrite it for you, with excellent results.
However, Jasper goes beyond that.
While QuillBot requires you to write an article, and only then will you be able to spin it, Jasper also helps generate AI-based content from scratch, based on keywords or topics you enter!
All you have to do is write a prompt, and the tool will generate natural, human-sounding content or ad copy (either short form or long form content, based on your subscription).
Here is what you can do with Jasper:
- Generate descriptions for products on eCommerce websites
- Generate sales copy for your products or services
- Get blog post ideas to beat writer’s block
- Generate introduction paragraphs for articles, so you can build the article from there
- Generate listicle ideas
- Expand a short sentence into a longer, more creative, more interesting sentence
- Generate text for Facebook Ad headlines and post content
- Generate a bio for your personal or company profile
- Generate content for video titles, descriptions, and introductions
- And a whole lot more!
You can even have the tool generate long-form content based on an intro or topic outline you write. You don’t have to do anything; just let the tool use machine learning to create natural sounding, beautiful content.
Jasper integrates with Surfer SEO (you will need a separate subscription for that), which is an SEO tool designed to help you optimize content for keyword frequency and higher rankings. The content the tool generates will not only sound natural but will also be optimized for keyword rankings.
You can also translate text from English into more than 25 different languages. The end result will sound natural in the destination language, which can be hard to do with traditional online translation tools like Google Translate.
Jasper features two plans: Starter and Boss Mode.
The Starter plan costs $29/month and allows you to generate short-form content such as blog introduction paragraphs, product descriptions, ad copy, and so on. It limits you to 20,000 words a month. If you want a higher word count, the cost increases.
The Boss Mode plan costs $59/month for 50,000 words. You can also opt for 700,000 words at a custom price.
Do check the pricing page for updated pricing information and what all you get in the price.
Spinbot is a better free alternative to QuillBot if you need to write larger articles. It allows you to rewrite up to 10,000 characters on the free plan, which is a lot more than what QuillBot allows.
In fact, the premium QuillBot plan has the same character limit as the free Spinbot plan.
You don’t need to sign up for a Spinbot account to use it. When you use QuillBot without signing up, on the other hand, you are limited to only 400 characters, a mere fraction of what Spinbot allows.
Spinbot does have a premium plan, which allows you to rewrite articles without any ads on the page and without needing to fill out the Captcha. That can help you save time.
It’s pretty cheap, starting at just $75/year or $10/month. Check the pricing page for more information.
Rewriter Tools is a great free alternative to QuillBot, as it doesn’t have the same character restrictions that QuillBot has, even though it is free and does not require you to create an account. If you don’t create an account on QuillBot, you will be limited to 400 characters when rephrasing articles.
Rewriter Tools is actually a suite of five different tools:
- Article Spinner: This tool automatically spins your content to give you a new, unique article.
- Article Rewriter: This tool also rewrites your articles, but it gives you more control in terms of what you want rewritten and how exactly to rewrite certain phrases.
- Paraphrasing Tool: This tool is similar to the Article Rewriter tool and helps you rephrase sentences, phrases, and paragraphs.
- Grammar Checker: This tool checks and corrects grammar mistakes.
- Word Counter: This tool tells you how many words your article has.
Rewriter Tools can be slow at times, but it is worth it. If you don’t like the results in one tool, like the Article Spinner, try out the Paraphrasing Tool or the Article Rewriter.
Paraphrasing Tool is another excellent free alternative to QuillBot. Unlike QuillBot, it allows you to rephrase up to 10,000 characters without even signing up for an account.
It is entirely free to use.
The Paraphrasing Tool even allows you to check a box if you want to rephrase capitalized words as well. By default, the tool assumes that capitalized words are specific nouns that you need to keep the same in your text, such as the names of places or people.
However, if you would like, you can rephrase capitalized words as well.
Another fantastic free alternative to QuillBot is Paraphraser.io. Paraphraser.io allows you to rephrase up to 1,000 words without creating an account, which is more than the 400 words QuillBot limits you to when you are not signed in.
You can select three modes for the style of content you want to produce:
One of the cool things about Paraphraser.io is that it supports multiple languages. You can rephrase not only in English but also in:
It is entirely free to use.
Project Topics has both a paraphrasing tool and a spin bot tool. Not only is the Project Topics Paraphrase tool entirely free to use, but it does not seem to have the same character restrictions that QuillBot places on you when you do not sign up for an account.
Also, Project Topics supports over 100 different languages, so you can rephrase in almost any language.
One cool feature of Project Topics, that QuillBot doesn’t offer, is the ability to exclude words. Sometimes, you will want to keep using specific words and not rephrase them; just enter them into the exclusion field and the tool will not replace them with synonyms.
Project Topics also has a grammar checker integrated into the paraphrasing tool, so many grammar mistakes will automatically be corrected by the tool.
Grammarly is not exactly a spinning tool, but it does allow you to rephrase sentences and words. At its core, it is a grammar checker, and the grammar checker part is superior to QuillBot’s grammar checker, especially if you have the premium version.
Grammarly will highlight spelling and grammar mistakes, even on the free plan, though the premium plan will give you access to more advanced grammar corrections.
However, Grammarly also helps you rephrase sentences and phrases. When you write sentences that are too convoluted, Grammarly will rewrite those sentences to make them simpler and easier to understand.
In addition, it will give you synonym suggestions for words you are overusing or that people overuse in general. You can also get synonym suggestions for any word by simply double-clicking on the word; Grammarly will give you various synonyms so that you can find one that fits with your original intent.
One of the cool things about Grammarly is that it has a Chrome extension that works on any site. Not only will the Chrome extension fix grammar and spelling mistakes, but it will allow you to get synonyms for any word, helping your content sound more unique.
Keep in mind that you will need the premium plan to get the advanced grammar and sentence restructuring tools. On the free plan, you will get basic spelling and grammar corrections and the ability to click on words for synonym suggestions.
Also, Grammarly has a plagiarism checker.
Article Rewriter Tool is an excellent alternative to QuillBot. Unlike QuillBot, it allows you to exclude specific words from being rephrased.
It also is entirely free to use, and it does not require you to create an account to use it. It does not have the same character count restrictions that QuillBot has for people who use it for free without an account.
When spinning an article, you can also check a box if you want the article to paraphrase and spin capitalized words as well.
SpinRewriter is a QuillBot alternative that supports both bulk upload and bulk export, unlike QuillBot. In other words, not only can you upload multiple articles to rewrite them in bulk, but you can also instantly generate up to 1,000 variations of each article you upload and export all of them.
Spin Rewriter integrates with Copyscape, so you can be sure that all the variations that the tool gives you will pass Copyscape.
SpinRewriter also has a grammar and spelling checker built in. Before it rewrites an article for you, it will ensure that there are no grammar and spelling mistakes, so the end result you get doesn’t have any mistakes either.
SpinRewriter uses Emulated Natural Language technology to ensure the articles it spins come out sounding natural, as if a human wrote them.
This is not a new tool; SpinRewriter has been around since 2011 (around a decade as of this article’s writing). Since then, the owners have been adding more and more features and improving the tool.
SpinRewriter is not free, but it does give you a five-day free trial if you sign up for the yearly plan, which currently costs $77/year. The monthly plan, on the other hand, costs $47/month and includes the same features, so it’s a no-brainer to choose the yearly plan.
Remember to check the pricing page for updated pricing information, as pricing can fluctuate.
10. Spinner Chief
While QuillBot is an online paraphrase tool, Spinner Chief has both a downloadable, desktop version and an online version. Not many spinners have both versions (most only have an online version), which makes Spinner Chief a good choice for those who don’t prefer to work in the cloud.
In addition, QuillBot does not have a team plan. However, Spinner Chief does have a team plan, which is best for teams working on projects together; it includes features such as a team thesaurus.
In addition, Spinner Chief gives you the option of bulk uploading articles and spinning them in batches. QuillBot does not offer that feature.
You can even create rewriting rules so that the articles come out exactly as you want them to.
Spinner Chief has a free version as well, so if you have more basic rewriting needs, it is a good tool to use. However, premium licenses are available as well if you have more complex needs; the premium plans enable you to get better, more refined, and more customized spin results.
WordAI is not free, but it is a great alternative to QuillBot. It has a number of features that QuillBot does not have; for example, it supports bulk uploads, so you can quickly rephrase many articles at once.
In addition, you can create up to 1,000 rewrites of every single article! That is useful for multiple reasons, such as for building links with hundreds of unique articles.
WordAI allows you to adjust how creative you get, which will affect how close the end result will be to the original result.
When using WordAI, it will automatically correct spelling and grammar mistakes in your text when you rewrite it, so you won’t have to worry about that. In addition, it will split sentences to make your text easier to read.
It will also use synonyms, similar LSI keywords, and similar text to rephrase your original content and give you an end result that conveys the same message in different words,
All results will pass Copyscape.
WordAI supports code view, so you can rewrite your HTML and coded articles as well.
Pricing starts at $24.95/month. Check the pricing page for more details.
Create quick, high quality & original content in a flash. Features like bulk creation, downloading, HTML support make WordAi the rewriting software of choice. Try now!
12. Copy Shark
Copy Shark is another excellent alternative to QuillBot. Unlike QuillBot, it will automatically generate new AI-based content from scratch for you for a variety of purposes, without you needing to write an entire article first.
You can use Copy Shark to generate content for product descriptions, ad copy, sales pages, videos, and more. All the results will sound natural, and you can use it to generate content in more than 20 languages, including German, French, Spanish, Korean, Hindi, Japanese, Italian, Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Lithuanian, Portuguese, Indonesian, Chinese, and more!
Pricing is just $39/month or $299/year; there is only one plan. Always check the homepage (scroll to the bottom) for updated pricing information.
Copy Shark AI is still a relatively new tool, so those who sign up now will get early access.
Plagiarism Detector has a Paraphrasing tool that you can use for free, without creating an account. It allows you to enter up to 2,000 words.
Compare that to QuillBot, which only allows you to enter up to 400 characters when you don’t sign up, which always ends up being a lot less than 2,000 words.
In addition to the free Paraphrasing tool, there is also a grammar checker tool, which will check your content for spelling and grammar errors. You can also use the Plagiarism checker tool to weed out copied content.
My Assignment Help boasts a paraphrasing tool that you can use online for free. It is a better alternative to QuillBot if you need to paraphrase articles that you have in a Word, PDF, PPT, or TXT document, though you can also copy and paste text into the online editor as well.
It is also a better alternative to QuillBot if you need to rewrite articles you have stored in your Dropbox or Google Drive accounts, as it integrates with both storage platforms and allows you to upload articles from there.
My Assignment Help is a comprehensive website that aims to provide students with help with doing their assignments and homework, and this paraphrasing tool is just one of the services it offers.
15. Pre Post SEO
The final QuillBot alternative we will look at is Pre Post SEO. It has a free online tool, without the character restrictions that QuillBot places on you.
However, it also allows you to upload an article or fetch an article you have stored in Google Drive or your online Microsoft account. Not only that, but it allows you to exclude certain words from being paraphrased; these other features also make it a great QuillBot alternative.
In addition to the paraphrasing tool, it has a plagiarism checker tool and a DA checker tool.
QuillBot is a pretty good tool in terms of the quality of the spun content it generates.
However, Jasper is a much better alternative, and it is the best QuillBot alternative for getting natural, human-sounding results.
The fact that you can generate content from scratch, without even writing an article first, makes it an excellent choice as well.
The only downside is that it is not free. If you are looking for a free QuillBot alternative but without the character restrictions, I would choose Spinbot or Spinner Chief, though the quality of the spun articles they produce can be hit and miss.
However, almost all AI article rewriter tools are not perfect, and you always have to read and edit the article yourself. That way, you can fix unnatural language, which is bound to crop up in almost all AI tools.
