    Has anyone had success with Grammatica?

    Grammatica

    I've used the trial version and it seems like a pretty good resource. I wanted to find out if anyone has the full version. And if so, if it's worth purchasing.

    I purchased it, and yes, it's a great program. Totally thumbs up from me. If you write a lot in Russian it's definitely amazingly comfortable to use it. Of course it doesn't automatically correct your grammar--but it acts as a fast resource, reference guide with grammar tables and stuff; so it's essentially a huge time-saver. There are still a few bugs that make it crash, hopefully those will be fixed as the software grows older. That's the only big flaw I see. Still worth every penny IMO. Yes, I very much recommend it. Try the trial first though.

    What it basically does is putting accent marks on russian texts, and can show cases/synonyms, and other grammatical stuff related to the word in a dropdown menu.

    Fester's right. Dropdown menus are the key elements of this software, if you're not sure how to conjugate a word but know the case, grammatica will show you the exact way it needs to be written in that case in the click of a mouse. No hassle. It also writes the translation of a word above it. And yes, it has neat grammar referece and dictionary. Only useful if you're writing in Russian a lot.

    I was kinda trying to put several features in one screenshot so it came out a little messy....



    Basically you can go to their website to see more. Just try the trial for 7 days

    Фонетическую транскрипцию надо сделать нормальную, а не shchastlivyye.
