1) The principles of good writing

A word can have several meanings in English.

It can therefore have different synonyms in relation to its possible meanings, but these synonyms are not necessarily synonyms of each other.

By implication, not all the synonyms can replace the word in all the texts, only a certain few correspond to the desired sense in the specific context.

So you must be able to select equivalents to use, either in terms of each occurrence or, more broadly, for the entire text, to obtain a coherent output text which perfectly follows the English language.

Of course, the machine does not replace human beings. You may need to make some adjustments to ensure compliance with grammatical rules. Good writing thus requires a little preparation (see the start page of the help).

 

2) Global exclusions and specific exclusions

Global exclusions are implemented at expression and equivalent level in the section of the dictionary.
They relate to all the texts of the current project.
They also relate to all the projects to which the respective dictionary is linked.

Specific exclusions are implemented at equivalent level in the section of the text in progress.
They only relate to the group of words selected.

If the group of words appears several times, its exclusions must be managed separately for each occurrence.
The word may appear several times within a text with different meanings, therefore each occurrence is replaced by its own equivalents. This word can thus be replaced by different equivalents in the output text.

 

3) The little extras

Select/unselect all the equivalents or expressions with one click.

Rolling over a group of words in the current text enables you to see the equivalents associated with this group of words.

Importing/exporting expressions and equivalents facilitates declension: Singular, plural forms of the nouns, conjugated forms of the verbs.
