Languagetool and wikipedia's bots


(Marcos) #1

First I'd like to congratulate everyone who work on languagetool.

Wikipedia has many bots[0], some of them for grammar checking, which use rules just like the ones languagetool uses. I'd like to know if anyone has checked the bots and/or asked for help to the people who run them. Just to not duplicate work.

Hi Marcos,

I'm not aware of a bot that does style and grammar checking and I couldn't find one on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bots/Status. If you know one, please let us know.

Regards
Daniel

I can't find one either but I'm sure a read about it somewhere.
In the meantime, check:

The most famous typo corrector on German Wikipedia is actually not a bot https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer:Aka/Tippfehler_entfernt#Kein_Bot although he uses scripts to detect them, but everything is done half-manually with automatisation scripts.
