Text Simplification Editor: The first version of our text simplification tool is now available. It includes lexical simplification, negation detection (you'd be surprised how often you use double negation, e.g., not illogical), grammar feedback, and a topic visualization section, ah and a few remaining issues that need fixing. All simplification suggestions are backed by user studies.

How does it work: 

  • Copy and paste your text and click 'simplify'. You will get suggestions that you can use.
  • The Lexical Chains tab shows how topics are distributed throughout the text. Try and get the same topics in the same paragraph.

This is a semi-automated simplification editor because with medical text, we have to ensure information remains correct. Nobody but a human can do this at the moment!
