Problem: You Don’t Know What Changed Between Two Documents

It may not happen every day, but there often comes a time when there are two documents or pieces of text that need to be compared. Perhaps you want to check for plagiarism between two articles or didn’t use version tracking and now need to identify what changes were made. 

Whatever the case, manual document comparison is tedious and time-consuming.

Solution: Text Compare

The free Copyleaks Text Compare tool uses AI to analyze content to find similarities between two files or text fragments. Though mainly used to identify plagiarism, the tool can also be used for version control, format deviation, or any other purpose when comparing copy.
