If you want to maintain your credibility and appearance in the business world, one of the most important things you need to pay attention to is communicating with people. Be it writing emails, well-documented articles, or travel blog posts. Of course, you want all of them to sound professional. Now imagine how you would be perceived if your writing was full of grammatical errors. You’d like to avoid that at any cost, wouldn’t you?

Whether you are a native English speaker or not, it is better to be safe than sorry. That is where grammar checker tools come into play.

It’s good to have standalone grammar checkers, but what is even better is when they can integrate with WordPress and other apps that you use for email and social media. That way, you will have all of your bases covered.

Below are the top 5 grammar checkers for WordPress users. Some of them might be more specialized than others, but they have their uses and benefits.
