Test: human proofreading


(Daniel Naber) #1

Hi,

if your browser is set to English, you may see a "Proofread by an Expert" button on languagetool.org. This is a test to see if our users are interested in human proofreading. The test will probably run for at least a week. If it works well, we might extend it to other languages.

If you don't see this button and want to give it a try, visit http://languagetool.org/human-proofreading and then languagetool.org (this will set a cookie so you're in the test group, no matter what language your browser is set to).

I am in the UK. With Internet Explorer, I see the button. With FireFox (54.0.1), I don't see the button,

Have you visited http://languagetool.org/human-proofreading before visiting the homepage with Firefox?

If if open http://languagetool.org/human-proofreading and then go to the home page, then I can see the button.

But, most people who use LT don't know about http://languagetool.org/human-proofreading. Thus, some people won't see the proofreading button. Possibly, that is by design. But, I wanted to tell the LT team so that they know the button doesn't always appear.

It's a test, so only 50% of the people will see the button. This way we can compare how users use the site with or without the button.
