    Hi, Nadya.

    I have been discussing options with Leo.
    Is Grammalecte just for French grammar correction?

    Grammarly now has a Text Editor SDK:

    Any chance you guys will be integrating this soon?

      Hello Craig! You are right – the Grammalecte plugin is intended for French grammar correction. As for adding Grammarly as a plugin – we’ll definitely think it over. Thanks for your feedback!
