As the founder of several blogs, I’ve used my fair share of writing tools.
In this article, I’m going to talk you through my personal recommendations. With over 6 billion indexed web pages and over 250,000 new websites per day, these tools will help you get ahead of the competition.
In this ultimate guide, I ranked the best paraphrasing tools based on price, accuracy, plaigrism-free test, speed, variety of templates and ease of use.
I’ll also compare:
- The best paraphrasing tool for blogs.
- The best free and paid options.
- The paraphrasing tools that talk about SEO.
- The tools with the best teams behind them.
- The best paraphrasing tool for individuals and agencies.
- And the best tools with free options.
Let’s get started.
What is the best paraphrasing tool?
There are a few things you’ll need to look for in a paraphrasing tool.
- The AI has to be good enough to sound authentic – simplistic synonym changers are a no-go.
- It should give you the flexibility to input your own word choices and phrases
- Needs to have technology such as SEO knowledge built in
- It needs to pass a plagiarism test, including on Google where deep sentiment analysis knows if you’ve copied something.
Here are the best.
My favourite paraphrasing tool is Jarvis.ai.
It’s much, much more than a paraphrasing tool, as you’re about to find out.
In fact, I think it will change the entire writing industry.
But, before I get to that…
What is Jarvis.ai?
Jarvis.ai makes the bold claim that artificial Intelligence is here to take your place as the new king of copywriting!
The introductory Jarvis video claims that Jarvis.ai has read up to 10% of the internet!
Previously known as Conversion.ai, Jarvis is an artificial intelligence program that generates content automatically for blogs, books and marketing campaigns. It can be used by individual bloggers, companies and agencies to get more creative freedom in their projects, without having to worry about writing everything themselves.
How flexible is Jarvis?
Jarvis has a lot of different templates and modes, from social media copy, to blogs, to reviews, to practically any other type of writing format you can think of.
The reason I say that it’s much more than just a paraphrasing tool is because you can use it to create content totally from scratch.
With a few simple instructions, Jarvis can write about whatever subject you want, in whatever tone you choose.
So, let’s get into the detail.
How does Jarvis perform as a paraphrasing tool?
Jarvis’s paraphrasing function is their content improver.
The content improver is just one of 40+ templates to help you improve your writing.
The content improver works by pasting copy (up to 600 characters at a time) into your content improver template.
You will have four steps:
- Paste the copy in that you want improving.
- Select or describe your tone of voice.
- Click how many different outputs or variations you want.
- Click Generate.
Here’s what those four steps look like on the Jarvis Dashboard:
To show you it in action, I will be using a selection of copy from Jarvis’ own blog. The section I have chosen is about SEO copywriting, and I’ve highlighted it in blue.
Here are the paraphrasing results:
Jarvis Output number 1:
Output number 2:
Output number 3:
I personally think it’s incredible how well these are actually written. The meaning has been maintained, but each version is reworded, and 100% plagiarism free. Also, each version approaches its subject from a slightly different angle, giving you more choice over your final output.
With a very quick edit, and some tweaks to the formatting, I think all of these would be perfectly viable paragraphs about SEO.
Best of all, it took me about 8 seconds from finding the copy to getting all three results.
What are Jarvis.ai’s key features?
I mentioned earlier that Jarvis is much more than a paraphrasing tool.
Here are some of its key features:
AIDA Framework — Attention, Interest, and Desire to write sales copy that converts
Email subject lines — Attention-grabbing subject lines that get more clicks
Long-Form Assistant — Capable of producing over 10,000 words in one writing session 😮
SEO – Title and Meta Descriptions — Intuitive SEO-optimized descriptions for articles that will fly up the rankings.
Content improver — The paraphrasing function of Jarvis.
Blog Post Outline — Templates of different types of blog posts that convert readers to customers.
Perfect Headline — Grab people’s attention instantly through catchy headlines.
Explain It To A Child — Paraphrase your text to make it easier to read.
There are dozens of templates available to choose from, but I’ve outlined which you’ll use most often when writing content. And they’re constantly adding new ones and improving on the existing copywriting templates
So, what’s the cost for this incredible tool?
There are two options:
- $29 per month
- $119 per month
I started with the $29 per month option and within an hour had upgraded.
If I was to be critical about one part of Jarvis, it would be that there is no middle price point. I find Boss Mode very much worth the money, but if you only use Jarvis for a small number of tasks, I can understand that $119 per month looks a bit steep.
However, the starter option is a bit limited in my opinion. It’s still a nice introduction but when you realise you can’t edit long form content with it, most serious bloggers will find that it falls a bit short.
Here are the two pricing options side-by-side:
Verdict: Boss Mode is worth the money, but another medium pricing option would be nice!
Jarvis.ai pros & cons:
I think i’ve made it clear that I love Jarvis, but it’s not totally perfect. As a paraphrasing tool, it won’t be ideal for everyone.
Here are its main pros and cons.
- Flexibility & depth – Jarvis is much more than a paraphrasing tool, it has over 40 templates to do everything from writing social media copy, to social ads, blogs, stories, product descriptions – plus you can tailor it to platforms like Amazon.
- Speed and accuracy – Jarvis’ paraphrasing happens instantly in front of your eyes. The product is slick and the writing style on certain templates is as good (if not better!) than a human.
- Pricing – There are just two pricing tiers which is easy to understand. The top price of $119 is practically a steal in my opinion.
- User experience – Jarvis is simple to use and understands a phenomenal range of commands.
- Help and support – The recipes on Jarvis detail how to do specific functions, which are really useful. They are in both written and video format, which makes them easy to understand and execute.
Statistics and facts – When coming up with stats and facts to use, Jarvis can be a little untrustworthy. You will definitely need to fact check the work.
Character limits – The content reworder feature is limited to 600 characters. This helps the accuracy because it’s a short chunk, but you will spend a fair bit of time copy and pasting.
No Medium Pricing – While the two options do keep it simple, the distance between them is too large in my opinion. The $119 for boss mode is well worth it, but it would be interesting to see what would come at a medium pricing point, between the more limited $29 a month and the all singing, all dancing top tier.
5/5 – ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ – Jarvis.ai is quite simply incredible. An industry game-changer.

If you’re not sold on Jarvis, then you’ll probably be looking for something more like a Quillbot solution.
Quillbot is simpler, smart and flexible. As a paraphrasing tool, it does what it says on the homepage.
What is Quillbot?
Quillbot is a market-leading paraphrasing tool. However, unlike Jarvis, it doesn’t try to be so much more.
If you are purely after a paraphrasing solution without the bells and whistles, then Quillbot might be a better fit for you.
Here’s what Quillbot says about itself:
How does Quillbot perform as a paraphrasing tool?
The answer in my opinion is brilliantly.
And the reviewers tend to agree.
In fact, here are some more positive reviews of Quillbot:
And this one:
People love it because of its simplicity and user experience. Plus, it’s been around a good while longer than Jarvis, so it has plenty of trust in the bank.
Let’s have a look at Quillbot in action.
I’ll use the same piece of text that I used for the Jarvis.ai test. This is how Quillbot changed it:
What I really love about this tool, aside from how simple it is to use, is that you can click on individual synonyms and change them. You can also tweak the sentence structure.
In fact, Quillbot probably does more work for you in terms of actual paraphrasing options than any other tool out there.
Along the top, you have a number of options. I particularly like the one called ‘synonyms’.
It gives you a slider so you can dial up or down the changes. Obviously the more synonym changes you make, the further it moves from the original text.
How many modes does Quillbot have?
Quillbot gives you the option to use 6 different modes.
- Standard (free)
- Fluency (free)
- Formal (paid)
Again, I love the simplicity of their offering. They show you exactly what you’ll get for the premium fee.
Quillbot, just like Jarvis, has two tiers. However, unlike Jarvis, the first option is free.
Here’s what the paid version is priced at. It becomes cheaper if you sign up for 6 or 12 months.
There’s also a handy 3-day money back guarantee, so you can change your mind.
It’s priced far cheaper than Jarvis, with the cheapest option coming in at $6.67 a month. However, you don’t get anything like as many features.
Quillbot pros & cons
Quillbot is a simple, clever paraphrasing tool. Here’s how it stacks up.
Simple design – In just a few clicks you’ll be paraphrasing your text. You won’t have to make a prior commitment, or start digging around for credit cards. The paraphrasing tool is right there in front of you as soon as the page loads
It’s very cheap – The pricing for Quillbot is more than fair. Its cheapest option comes in at under $7 a month, compared to Jarvis.ai’s cheapest starter plan of $29. However, as we’ve already talked about, the amount you get for that doesn’t really compare.
Fast and flexible – It paraphrases instantly, and then gives you the option to pick different synonyms, or even dial up or down the amount of synonyms in the text. This amount of control is a really nice touch.
Uncomplicated to use – One criticism of Jarvis is that with over 40 templates, it can be tricky to navigate. Quillbot does not have this problem, everything is there for you from the moment you arrive.
Slightly limited – Quillbot is somewhat limited as a rewriting tool. While it is adept at changing the wording, it doesn’t have the intelligence of Jarvis to add any meaning, stats and knowledge to the work.
Just a paraphrasing tool – Again, Quillbot’s beauty is in its simplicity, but this can also be a limiting factor. It doesn’t have lots of different templates, and the tone of voice options are limited compared to other offerings.
4/5 – ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ – Quillbot is a great paraphrasing option. It simply isn’t designed to have the complexity or slickness of Jarvis.ai. It’s almost unfair to compare them.
If you just want a paraphrasing tool, and don’t need all the extra features, then Quillbot’s simple UX, basic design and uncomplicated interface make it a perfect option to try out.

Once you arrive on PrePostSEO, there’s a chance you might never leave. That’s because it’s far, far more than just a paraphrasing tool. Check out its homepage interface:
It highlights its 95+ internet tools that you can use, and many of them seem to do the job of a paraphraser, in very slightly different ways.
What is PrepostSEO?
Prepost SEO is a repository of web tools, of which paraphrasing is just one. It boasts:
- Plagiarism checker
- Paraphrasing tool
- Text summarizer
- Grammar checker
- Article rewriter
However, PrepostSEO isn’t just limited to writing tools, it also has practically everything you’d need to advance your SEO.
Here’s another screenshot of their writing and education tools:
You’ll also notice similar sounding tools, such as:
- Word combiner
- Page comparison
- Text compare
- Similar page checker
In short, PrepostSEO claims to be able to paraphrase text AND check that the paraphrasing will pass all plagiarism checks.
How good is it as a paraphrasing tool or article rewriter?
Here is a section of text that we are going to paraphrase:
And here’s the paraphrased version:
The first thing to note is that it sounds pretty good. It also gives you options to click on the synonyms to change them as you wish.
I decided to do with the ‘fluency’ option, which seems to have made minimal changes. This, for me, is a bit of an issue as I doubt this would have changed significantly enough to pass any test.
However, given that it still sounds good, you could run it through the paraphrasing tool 3/4 times and it would be a totally different piece of text.
Are there more features?
There are multiple options even with the free version where you can pick how much paraphrasing you want to take place. Those are:
There is also a section at the bottom where you can add different paraphrasing commands:
- Mind-blowingly simple to use
- Easy interface where you can put different commands in as you wish
- Plenty of additional options, including rewriting, summarising (and crucially), a plagiarism checker in the bottom toolbar
- A much longer word and character limit than the other tools on this list. You can check up to 1,000 words for free, and 25,000 words with the premium plan.
- Options over each synonym, as well as highlighting where the changes have taken place in the text for faster analysis.
- Not as much ‘deep understanding’ as other tools, more of a synonym swapper than deep AI like Jarvis
- Some of the wording can sound clunky and awkward, so as a user you’ll have to ‘do more’ to make it sound fluent.
You can buy yearly or monthly plans, here are the options:
- $350 for Company
- $150 for Standard
- $50 for Basic
Or, you could stick with the free version, but the word counts are limited to 1,000 words.
4/5 – ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ – PrePostSEO has lots of different options and tools, and is designed with a slick, clean user interface.
Plus, you’ll be able to paraphrase and plagiarism check in the same place.

You’ve probably heard of Grammarly. It’s an effective paraphrasing tool because it contains grammar check, vocabulary enhancement, and spell checker. It’s a more interactive tool than others on this list because it’ll go through your text and highlight areas that could be improved by rewording, or rephrasing.
Put simply, you’ll work with grammarly to paraphrase your work. As a bonus, you can also get an online grammar lesson to make sure that you’re using proper grammar throughout.
The grammarly review is ideal for students because it helps them write better papers by making sure their grammar is correct.
When you click on “check your writing” it will automatically detect what type of grammar mistake there is whether it be incorrect verb tenses or subject-verb agreement.
There are times when Grammarly suggests alternative words that will fit better in a sentence. This type of paraphrasing tool makes life easy since you only have to copy and paste your essay into the box provided on their website and it’ll underline certain areas.
It’s up to you whether you choose to act on each individual suggestion.
- Comes with massive pedigree as one of the most popular writing tools in the world. It’s received rave reviews from users in practically every country.
- It is interactive and intuitive. Instead of just changing the text, you’ll be able to highlight words and see suggestions.
- One of the issues with paraphrasing tools is that when the AI falls short, the text can be riddled with errors. Grammarly is better than everything else at understanding context, so it will highlight sections where your text doesn’t sound perfect.
- Grammarly doesn’t so much do the work for you, but suggest improvements. That may be a pro or a con, depending how you look at it.
Here are the pricing options for Grammarly:
- Premium $12 a month
- Business $12.50 a month (per member)
5/5 – ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️ – Grammarly is one of the best (if not the best) writing tools on the planet. Equally good as a paraphrasing tool, spellchecker, grammar checker and rewriter, it’s got all bases covered and works perfectly.
It’s ideal for editing long form text, all in one go.

Speedwrite is a tool that allows you to reword sections at a time. While it hasn’t got the AI capabilities of a Jarvis or Grammarly, it still performs well when it comes to simple rewriting.
The beauty of Speedwrite is that you can try much longer pieces. Say you’ve written a piece that’s 1000 words and you want help or inspiration rewording sections of it, speedwrite is an ideal, simple tool.
The biggest pro of Speedwrite over a tool like Quilbot, is that it doesn’t just swap synonyms, it really finds the meaning of a paragraph and rewrites it.
Here is the before and after:
You click ‘predict’ and…
Interestingly, the result is a lot shorter than the original, because it looks like Speedwrite only tries to reword the bits where the meaning is clearest. I actually quite like this because it stops it trying to be too clever and minimizes mistakes.
Speedwrite has multiple plans. Pricing is scaled according to the number of paragraphs you rephrase, as well as whether you pay monthly or subscribe to the annual plan. Here are the pricing options:
- $19.99 per month
- $11.65 per month
- $8.33 per month
4/5 – ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ – Speedwrite is one of the fastest-growing paraphrasing tools to help you reword content quickly. As the name suggests, it scores high for speed, and works exactly as you’d expect a paraphrasing tool to work. However, it certainly doesn’t have the depth of a Jarvis or Grammarly.

Now we’ve gone through the best paraphrasing tool options, let’s dig a little deeper into the uses for a paraphrasing tool.
What is a paraphrasing tool?
A paraphrasing tool is a piece of software that helps you to paraphrase an idea or piece of text by either rewriting it, or giving you a different perspective, or suggested synonyms to help change the text.
Paraphrasing tools are also referred to online as:
- Spinning tools
- Rewriting tools
- Content spinner
- Content rephraser
- Article rewriter
While there are some nuances, these all perform very similar functions.
Why do you need a paraphrasing tool website?
No matter how unique your ideas, you can still run in to issues when it comes to writing, as your piece may show signs of mirroring within its text.
There are currently estimated to be more than 47 billion web pages on the internet. An article in 2015 estimated that if the internet was printed as a book, it would be over 300 billion pages. Given that over 250,000 websites are spawned every day, the number of articles is almost too big to comprehend.
Therefore, you can easily fall into accidental traps where innocently expressed ideas closely resemble other material. When this happens, you can be penalized for plagiarism by everyone from Google, to an academic professor.
Paraphrasing is best used on your own work to help you rewrite sections of your text, ensuring you can never be penalised for duplicate content.
Best paraphrasing tool: a summary
Today, there is a demand for content like no other. Parahrapsing tools should not be used to steal ideas or copy someone else’s work, but they can help you with writer’s block if your work isn’t sounding as polished as you’d like.
In most cases, it’s far quicker to use a paraphrasing tool than it is to head to a thesaurus or do a synonym search on Google.
The best tools go somewhat further that that, using real AI to help you with your structure, grammar, tone of voice and SEO.
The top three in my opinion are:
