WordRake Holdings, LLC released WordRake 3.95, the newest edition of its widely used WordRake® professional in-line editing software. This is the company’s second update to its editing algorithms in two months. WordRake 3.95 offers greater accuracy and two new features on its ribbon.
Updates for All Users
All WordRake for Word and/or Outlook users will find upgrades and refinements to existing algorithms. And with a new shortcut on the WordRake ribbon, all users will have an easier way to provide feedback on editing suggestions. This new button builds on the ability to report bad edits launched in August 2020.
Here’s an example of some of the corrections we’ve made to WordRake’s editing suggestions in 3.95:

Launched in 2012, WordRake is editing software designed by writing expert and New York Times bestselling author Gary Kinder. The software was originally created so lawyers could focus on their legal analysis without using unnecessary verbiage, but has since been expanded to work for all types of professional writing. While teaching over 1,000 writing programs for many of the country’s largest businesses and law firms, Gary identified a set of signals that indicate wordiness and muddled writing. Those signals became the foundation for WordRake editing software. WordRake runs in Microsoft Word and Outlook, and uses complex, patented algorithms to find and improve weak lead-ins, confusing language, and high-level grammar and usage slips. A free 7-day trial is available at www.wordrake.com.
