Antidote Launches Generative AI for Sentence Reformulation

December 5, 2023 Press releases

Today Druide informatique launches its very own generative artificial intelligence (AI) engine for sentence reformulation—a first for Antidote. Leveraging the latest advancements in large language model (LLM) technology, this new feature provides users with suggestions for rewording full sentences and even whole paragraphs.

Antidote Web now includes a new Reformulation mode users can activate via a button or contextual icon. When operating in this mode, the application will generate up to three different suggestions for rephrasing a sentence or paragraph; the user can then choose the one they prefer and insert it directly into their text. Since Antidote integrates with a wide variety of Windows, Mac and web applications, it applies the changes seamlessly; no need to copy-paste.

Reformulation reworks the original sentence by changing its vocabulary or syntax. It’s particularly useful for giving a more natural feel to text written in one’s second language (e.g., French written by an English speaker). It can also help resolve the potential structural issues Antidote flags as discontinuities. A bilingual subscription allows users to reformulate their writing in both English and French, in keeping with the source text’s language.

“The clever reformulations made possible by generative AI open up a whole new world of possibilities, taking Antidote’s powerful corrector to another level,” declares Éric Brunelle, President of Druide and Lead Designer of Antidote. “We can’t wait to see how our customers make the most of this new technology, as we plan to keep building on it so we can take it even further.”

Reformulation is offered at no extra cost to users of Antidote Web as part of a public beta test. Druide encourages all Antidote+ and Antidote Web subscribers to take advantage of the new feature and welcomes all feedback.

Antidote Web is available as part of the Antidote+ package and as a subscription for organizations. Details are available at
