What’s New in Antidote 10:
120 new features in interface, functions and content
Amongst some 120 new features for English and French, the corrector now helps in writing more inclusively and more legibly. The dictionaries bring together both languages by offering the translation of 2.5 million words and expressions. Users may now also take advantage of a new optional service allowing them to synchronize their personal dictionaries on multiple devices.
Let yourself be amazed by the new French Module
Purchase the French Module for Antidote 10 (with the Premium Upgrade, for example) and see your definitions dictionary display over 800,000 translations of all words, expressions and proverbs. Even better, our linguists have translated 1,700,000 combinations going both ways, with examples to support them all.
Two eagerly-awaited new filters – Readability and Gender Neutrality
The readability filter underlines long words and sentences, rare or foreign words, abbreviations and nested phrases. It even includes the new Antidote readability index, from zero (hardly readable) to 100 (very readable). The gender neutrality filter points out ways to ensure an equal representation of men and women in your text, for example where names of professions are used.
Over 8,000 new words and expressions have been added, such as binge-watch, facticide and hoverboard, along with 117,000 new synonyms and 26,000 combinations.
The synonym lists are now sorted by proximity with the headword, giving you quick access to the most relevant alternatives. This applies not only to the synonyms dictionary, but also to the corrector, where Antidote suggests synonyms to help you avoid repetitions.
