Great writing equates to great business. Error-free writing is extremely important when you’re closing a deal or even greeting someone via email. When you’re working in a Google Sheet, check your spelling before you send off inventory requests and accidentally misspell a vital order.

With the spelling and grammar tools below, you’ll feel as if you’ve hired your own personal writing team.

1. Spell Check Your Google Docs and Presentations

If you’re a frequent user of Google Docs and Presentations, you’re familiar with the red line under your text that lets you know whenever you’ve made a spelling mistake. It’s great to make these changes as you go along, but what if you’re working on a really long document and you want to make all those changes at the end?

In Google Docs and Presentations you’re able to spell check the document all at once, so you can quickly fix these changes without disrupting your writing.

2. So Many Cells, So Little Time

There are many cells in a Google Sheet and revising the spelling one cell at a time is probably the last task you want to do. Thankfully, spell check with Google Sheets behaves just the same as it does with Docs or Slides. Your text is pulled in from the web so it’s always up to date, and you can add words to your dictionary so you don’t repeatedly get asked to change words.

3. Gmail has Your Back on Spell Check
Gmail has two forms of spell check to make sure your email messages are free of grammar mistakes and misspellings. You know those red lines that appear under your text when a word is misspelled? That is the automatic spell check in Gmail. Using the additional spell check in Gmail, you will catch more mistakes like capitalization and complicated misspellings.

4. Now About the Grammar…

Grammarly is spell check on steroids. No matter where you are composing text in Chrome, the Grammarly Chrome extension will check it for grammar and spelling errors. To take things one step further, it can also check for plagiarism, a function that could prove useful for educators.
