Why Should You Choose an AI Paraphraser Over a Simple Rephrasing Tool?

Artificial intelligence has a lot of applications, and it is used in various sectors like healthcare, banking, automobiles, and also in online tools and devices.

There are many types of tools available on the internet for different types of individuals. Among others, AI is also used in paraphrasing tools. With the help of AI, the results provided by paraphrasers are vastly improved.

In this topic, we will explore why such paraphrases are better than their simple non-AI counterparts.

How AI is Incorporated in Paraphrasing Tools?

Paraphrasing usually uses a modern type of AI, which includes models like NLP, and GPT-3.  These models enable the paraphrasing tool to make the content easier to read, improve its quality, understand its prompt, and create new text without altering the original meaning.

NLP is a subset of AI, which stands for Natural Language Processing. This model enables the tool to understand the meaning of natural languages, such as English or Spanish, etc. In paraphrasing tools, this model works to help the tool understand the entered content so that it can move ahead to processing it.

Other than NLP, paraphrasing tools also work with the GPT-3 model. GPT-3 stands for Generative Pre-Trained Transformer 3. This technology basically allows the tool to understand and continue the context of the entered text.

Tools that don’t utilize the GPT-3 model simply change some words with their synonyms without paying any attention to the effect that they (the words) have on the overall meaning. As a result, the paraphrased output is often clunky and nonsensical.

Why Should You Use an AI Paraphraser Instead of a Simple Rephrasing Tool?

Now that we’re done looking at the technologies on which AI paraphrasers are based, let’s move on to look at why you should choose them over simple non-AI ones.

The benefits of using an AI paraphraser are as follows:

1. Little to No Contextual Errors

The first benefit of using AI paraphrasers is that they don’t make any errors while rewording the content.

AI paraphrasers work a little differently from normal rephrasing tools. The latter does not understand the context, and they just replace some words with their synonyms. Since they do not understand the context, the replaced words can often spoil the whole meaning.

Let’s explain this with an example.

If you have content that you want to rephrase, and if you use simple paraphrasing tools, you will only get some word replacements in the output…like this:

“The man walked on the road trying to find his money. He stepped on a pebble and slipped, after which he fainted.”

“The man trotted on the road attempting to locate his assets. He stepped on a pebble and slithered, after which he swooned.”

These changes are made without even determining whether the words are making sense in the text or not. That is why you can see that the output looks terrible.

On the other hand, an AI paraphrase tool does not do this. It understands the context and makes such changes that don’t alter the overall meaning. If we use the same content that we did earlier and paraphrase it in the style of an AI tool, here is the result that we will get:

“The man strolled on the road looking for his cash. He stepped on a pebble and lost his footing, due to which he passed out

“Passed out” is a contextually correct synonym of “Fainted”. Similarly, “Slipped” was changed to “Lost his footing.” Do notice that the paraphrasing tool remembered it was talking about a ‘man’, which is why it used the word “him.”

2. Correct Grammatical Mistakes

Some paraphrasing tools make some errors and give the results without mentioning or correcting them, but AI paraphrasers don’t like grammar and spelling errors.

This is another reason that you should pick AI tools rather than their simple counterparts. Essentially, if you enter some content (that has grammatical or spelling errors) in a basic non-AI tool, the latter will not fix the issues when giving the output.

However, if you give such content to an AI tool, it will automatically correct the errors during the paraphrasing process. You can see how this works in action in the below screenshots:

In the above figure, the AI paraphraser not only rephrased the text but also corrected the grammar mistakes. But if we do the same thing with a non-AI tool, here are the results that we would get:

As you can see, this simple rephrasing tool ignored the grammar errors and just paraphrased the text. So, this was another benefit of using an AI paraphraser instead of a simple rephrasing tool that it can also correct grammar and spelling errors.

3. Make Content Concise

The other benefit of using AI paraphrasers is they can make your content concise and remove redundancy from it. This is something you can’t get with a simple tool.

As you can see in the above image, the AI paraphraser not only rephrased the text but also shrunk the unnecessarily long phrases.

But if we give this work to a simple paraphraser, will it be able to do this? Let’s see.

So, as you can see, simple rephrasing tools are not able to make the text concise.


In this post, we have discussed some reasons to choose an AI paraphraser instead of using a simple rephrasing tool. We have clearly shown (with examples) how AI paraphrasers are much better than simple paraphrasing tools in a lot of aspects.

To put it briefly, you should use AI tools because they can smartly understand the context of the input and make changes accordingly. They can also help in removing grammatical and spelling errors that you may have unknowingly made.
