    I think that can be done with Word add-ons, like Grammarly's. It checks grammar, spelling, etc..

    I can't comment on other text processors, as I haven't used any for several years now.

    As for another text processor, the best alternative is probably Libre Office Writer. Its interface reminds me of old versions of Office (2003-). As for the specific features you requested, I can't really tell but maybe you will can test the software to see if you like it (it's a free software, and there's a portable version).

    MS Word is the best product on the market.

    If you already have office 365 then there is nothing better to use. If you want go to grammar settings and enable all options but other than that MS Office is ahead of all programs i tried.

    Word can do everything you listed just turn on the options in the spellchecker and grammar check. You can even instruct it to ignore certain grammar rules if for some reason you need them wrong.

    But don't place total faith in Word's "grammar". It often doesn't understand what you are saying, so in a complex language like English, it can make mistakes. You need some common sense and basic knowledge of the language. Artificial intelligence is still pretty dumb when it comes to understanding what people are trying to say, sometimes.

    The best people to ask online are professional translators. They are typically very familiar with which soft programs work best for different languages. There are forums that discuss translation generally - such as proz.com.

    That's one of the reasons Word allows you to ignore a rule :) Actually you can even ignore a rule inside a single phrase and not the entire text.

    Hi sorry for the deelay, the notify system does not work at all. Look I want to wirte well in spanish and i know grammar and ortography, include i am "style corrector", but sometimes i have mistakes.
    For example in english have short sentences and you use more "." we use more "," and ";", include "- -" are similar function to "()" and ", ,".. We can have very long sentences. I see stilus for word plugin and it alert me about long sentences but that program are too expensive. I can advert a long sentence whitout software but it take me too much time.
    And in my wirtes, specialy in social research i have to use concepts for example "adaptation" and sometimes i see in one sentence too many repeats of this word, include i see some expresions repeated. I know atlantis word processor can detect "repeat words" in a single click, but his edit capabilities are too bad.
    Because that i as for suggestions.

    I am using Office 2003.
    It does exactly what I need. Newer versions have A LOT of new features, but I do not need them.
    I have also installed MS 2003 compatibility pack, just to be able to read files created with newer versions of Office.
