Paraphrasing a piece of writing with the assistance of online tools has become a common practice among content writers. The ability of these tools to provide valuable results within seconds is one of the main reasons for their popularity.
There is an abundance of such paraphrasing tools on the internet. However, in this article, we are going to discuss one that stands out due to its exceptional features. The tool that we are talking about is Paraphraser.io. It is one of the most accurate paraphrasing tools available on the internet with excellent features and quick results.
In this blog, we are going to discuss the reasons that will clarify why it reigns the best paraphrasing tool. So, without wasting any time, let’s get started:
1. Advanced AI Technology
Artificial intelligence is gradually becoming a part of every big industry in the world. It is also playing an important role in structuring online tools. Due to their machine-learning abilities, AI-based tools guarantee that the generated output will be natural or human-like.
Paraphraser is also an AI-based tool that works on Natural Language Processing (NLP) to understand the context of your phrases and subsequently paraphrase complete passages or even articles in no time.
The above-mentioned technologies make sure that the paraphrased results are readable and unique.
2. Multiple Paraphrasing Modes
Paraphraser provides its users with 6 different modes. Three of them are available for free, whereas users need to purchase their premium plan to unlock the other three modes. To provide a thorough review of all the modes (both free & paid), we purchased their premium weekly package only for $7. In this way, we were able to cover all of the paraphrasing modes that are available.
Let us take you through all of them one by one and explain how all of them are distinct in their function.
This mode introduces synonyms that are simpler than the original words and consequently improves readability. Here is an example of this by paraphrasing a sample sentence:
In this particular example, the paraphrased text is pretty much the same as the original one, as there weren’t many changes required in the text.
To explain the difference in all the modes, we decided to use the same sentence for all of them. Here are the results produced by this mode:
Here you can see that quite a few changes have been made to our original sentence by the addition of synonyms. The meaning of both phrases (original and paraphrased) is the same, but the wording is different.
c. Word Changer
The previous modes changed the original sentence by the addition of synonyms. This mode is also similar to the previous ones, but the intensity of new words is relatively higher. The following example complements this statement.
Words like movies, usually, prefer, and simpler has been replaced. The replaced words, as you can see, have not changed the main theme of our original text. This feature can be very useful in situations when you have unintentionally repeated words in your content and need to reduce redundancy.
Creative mode is one of the three premium modes. For comparison, we used the same sentence in the premium tools as well.
As evident from the example above, the function of the creative mode is to improve the flow of sentences.
This is the second on the list of premium modes, and its results might surprise you. While paraphrasing the same sentence with Smarter mode, we have got the below results:
The entire phrase has been rewritten by this mode. Still, surprisingly enough, both sentences have the same meaning. This shows the immense potential that this mode holds.
As the name of the mode implies, it shortens the sentence either by removing long clauses and replacing them with short and descriptive words or introducing punctuations such as commas and semicolons to shorten the length of a text.
In the above image, you can clearly see the difference in the length of phrases.
From the above discussion, we can conclude that all the modes function perfectly, and none of them paraphrases content without preserving the original meaning.
3. Excellent Features
Moving on to the use of the tool, we have a list of some very useful features that ensure user satisfaction. We have briefly explained all of them below:
a. Synonym Addition
Paraphraser works by replacing some words from the original text with new words that fit better contextually. This feature is very carefully programmed to make sure that the addition of new words doesn’t change the original meaning of the text.
Here you can see the underlined word is a synonym of the word “faulty” as used in the original sentence.
b. Importing Options
The tool can take input in a number of different ways, the simplest one being typing or pasting content. The other file formats that can be uploaded are doc, docx, and txt.
c. Output Options
The result provided by the tool can be copied from start to finish by clicking the “copy to clipboard” option. Secondarily, if you want the output in a document form, then you can click the download button, and all the results will be converted into a document file and downloaded to your device.
These buttons perform the above-explained functions.
d. Other Tool Integration
Paraphraser doesn’t only consist of a paraphrasing tool. It also provides additional services such as the plagiarism checker and summarizing tool. These tools can be used separately as well as on the paraphrased results.
A few options are given on the bottom side of the output box like check grammar and summarize as shown in the image below. Clicking on these options will perform the respective function on your paraphrased results.
e. Language Options
There are more than 20 languages supported by Paraphraser.io. First, you have to select the language in which you want to paraphrase and then enter the text in that particular language to get results (English is the default language).
This list of options is displayed when the language bar on the bottom right is clicked.
4. Quick Results
The speed at which Paraphraser provides results is very impressive. Out of all the modes, Shorten had the longest loading time, which was 7-8 seconds for 16 words. Based on these numbers, you can calculate how fast the paraphrasing tool is. However, some might argue that such quick results were generated because a short sentence was used.
To clear all skepticism, we took a 200-word passage from this article and paraphrased it using the Shorten mode. The results were produced within 15 seconds, in which multiple parts of the passage were modified and the word count was reduced from 200 to 90.
5. Beginner Friendly

A simple design has been used for the website. The developers have been very successful in creating a tool that is simple to use and also provides multiple additional features or modes for maximum optimization.
