Paraphrasing is an essential element of the writing process to get high-quality results. It is performed by altering the content of the writing with the help of different strategies. Just like any other work, Artificial Intelligence is also assisting people to perform this task conveniently.
The leading platforms to do so are ChatGPT, Google Bard, Bing AI, and AI-based paraphrasing tools that are being used popularly to paraphrase a piece of content.
In this article, we are going to help you find out which one of these is best for you and can help you in writing a good piece of contents.
Now, let’s discuss the factors that can help us determine the efficiency of these tools one by one.
The sample text we will be using to judge how well it is paraphrased is as follows:
“One of the most important issues affecting our world right now is climate change. Global temperatures have risen as a result of increased greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and industrialization. Storms, droughts, and heat waves are becoming more common and severe due to this phenomenon. We must act right away to lessen our carbon footprint, switch to renewable energy sources, and save our natural ecosystems.”
For testing purposes, we provided a piece of content and prompted ChatGPT to paraphrase it. Let’s see how well ChatGPT has replaced the words with their synonyms.
Here are the results of the paraphrased content from ChatGPT:
Now, let’s break down the results to discuss the important factors of paraphrasing.
The effectiveness of the paraphrase increases with how closely the synonyms related to the context (actual concept) of the original content. As you can observe in the results, ChatGPT did the job really well.
The replaced words clearly explain the original context of the original text.
ChatGPT also altered the structure to make potential changes in the content. The structure was altered for almost all the sentences in the content.
Although it is very useful in paraphrasing, sometimes keeping the structure as it is can be more beneficial.
Readability refers to how easily one can understand the written content. It is an important part of the paraphrasing process. ChatGPT replaced the words in the following way:
- “Important” replaced by “Crucial”
- “Issues” with “Concerns”
- “Rise” with “Escalation”
Although other changes were also made, these are enough to judge the readability factor of paraphrased content by ChatGPT.
Google Bard is an AI tool powered by Google that helps people perform many tasks one of which is paraphrasing. After testing ChatGPT, we provided the same content to Google Bard to check its performance.
Here are the results:
Google Bard actually expanded the provided text instead of paraphrasing it simply. It can also be considered as paraphrasing but we’re talking about increasing the effectiveness of a content of specific length.
The context of the changed words (and structure, in this case) remains good as the tool expanded it to a great extent to explain it better.
The structure of the whole content is completely changed. The tool has paraphrased the content and explained it in bullets and headers form.
The readability of the paraphrased content by Google Bard is quite good. Structuralizing the content in headers and bullets is the sole reason for it. Moreover, the words that are used in the expanded part are quiet easy to read.
Bing AI is Artificial Intelligence-based chat tools provided by Microsoft in their browser Edge. We provided the text we did in the previous two tools to check how well this one paraphrases the content.
Here are the results provided by Bing AI:
Not many changes are made in the paraphrased content but the context of the content remains pretty clear.
The tool mostly focused on changing the structure of the sentence. Although the changes are minor, they affect greatly the quality of the paraphrased content overall.
The altered structure has greatly simplified the paraphrased content. This has helped increase the readability to a great extent. The simple wording and sentence structure helps a lot in improving the readability of the content.
AI paraphrasing tools are specially trained by NLP and ML that provide accurate paraphrasing results without changing the original meaning of your content and make your text unique.
These are one of the most widely used tools for altering the content in order to increase the quality and readability of the content. To test these tools, we provided the same piece of written text to an AI paraphrasing tool from Paraphraser.io to test it.
Here’s the content the paraphrasing tool provided:
Let’s break down the results according to the factors discussed above.
By only replacing the necessary words, the AI paraphrasing tool has effectively maintained the context of the original text. Replacing words like…
- “Important issues” with “Biggest problems”
- “More common” with “Frequent”
- “Act right away” with “Immediately”
has not only maintained the flow of the content but also enhanced its quality. Moreover, these tools provide more suggested synonyms so you can use the one that is the most relevant to the context of your text.
The tool has altered the sentence structure of the first sentence only. Although this depends on the tone you paraphrase the content into. These tools provide various tones in which you can paraphrase your content (mostly in the premium versions.)
The replaced words by the tool in the paraphrased version of the text are pretty easy to understand. The thing that gives one point more to AI paraphrasing tools than the other tools we have discussed so far is the suggested variety of synonyms.
This enhances the readability as well as the overall quality of the content.
That’s pretty much it. Artificial Intelligence has changed the game of paraphrasing to a great extent. Since it is a very basic part of the writing procedure that helps enhance the quality of the content, choosing the right tool to do it makes all the difference in the world.
In the information given above, we have compared 4 of the best AI-based tools that people are using to paraphrase their content. You can make your own decision but the quality and variety of options provided by AI paraphrasing tools keeps them ahead of ChatGPT, Google Bard, and Bing AI.
