Curie’s checks improve and polish your English-language writing by suggesting changes with its AI-based model trained on thousands of professional edits.
Curie requires .doc or .docx files. Only one .doc or .docx file can be edited per request.
Word count limitations
We accept documents with 25000 words or fewer for checks.
Style of English preference
Curie can check either American English or British English. Each time you upload a document, Curie will ask in which style of English you want your document checked. Please see our article on the difference between American and British English if you are unsure which to choose.
When you start a check, a new document card will appear in your workspace with a processing status. Typically, the check will be completed in about 3 minutes. However, it may take up to 10 minutes to finish, depending on your file size and internet speed.
Downloading a checked document
After completing the check, select Download in the card with the uploaded document’s file name to save your new checked document. Once downloaded, you can open it in your preferred word processor.
Curie will make noticeable changes to your document that you will see as tracked changes. Some of the changes you can expect include:
Changes to incorrect articles (like "the" or "an").
Spelling and capitalization corrections
Improvements on awkward phrasing (e.g., "in the current time" changed to "currently")
Incorrect word choices corrections (e.g., confusing "latter" and "later")
Incorrect preposition (like "above" or "among") corrections
Curie Check rate limits
All users can check up to 3 documents per hour.
Reporting or acknowledging the use of Curie to a journal
Certain journals may ask for a statement about using technology with artificial intelligence (AI) to help write your paper. Our tools work much like the grammar check in Microsoft Word, which uses machine learning.
If you have to include a statement in your paper, we offer a sample declaration below for your consideration. You can adjust it to fit your specific requirements.
During the preparation of this work, the author(s) corrected the language by using Microsoft Word and the editing services of American Journal Experts, both of which use tools based on machine-learning algorithms to assist with language correction. After using this service, the author(s) reviewed and edited the content as needed and take(s) full responsibility for the content of the publication.
