Zia learned Español! Check out its writing suggestions today

Announcing the early release of the Spanish version of our writing assistant. Now, instantly get grammar, writing style, and spelling suggestions for your documents en Español instantly.

Ever since we first released Zia in Writer, a lot of you told us how you loved having a built-in grammar and style checker in a word processor, and that it saves you time and cost to not need a separate app doing only that.

What a lot of you also asked was for us to teach Zia other languages—Español being the most requested one on the list. Today, we're super excited to let you tell you that we've done just that.

Meet Zia, our writing assistant en Español. It works with all the different variants of  Español (e.g., Mexican, Castilian) and instantly comes up with AI-based tips on grammar, writing style, spelling, and readability of your documents.

Contextual Grammar checks

As an AI-based assistant, Zia understands the context of your sentences and uses that intelligence to identify errors and provide you with the correct replacements, just as a good editor or beta reader would do for you.

To get it right, Zia combines machine learning techniques with the grammatical rules of Spanish to check for common, and not-so-common, mistakes like gendered words, use of accents, adjectives vs nouns, or subject-verb disagreement.

Suggestions to improve the writing quality

Once you're done fixing grammar errors, the next thing Zia checks is how polished your writing is. In addition to grammatical errors and typos, there are things in writing—like cliches, or using more words than necessary to convey a point—that can make or break the quality of your piece.

Apart from the orange underlined suggestions that appear as you type, there's also a meticulous checklist of pointers Zia prepares for you to go through before you share the document with anyone else. This includes checks for tone (formal vs. informal), confused words (if you've accidentally confused false cognates or homophones), archaic words (outdated words that are not used anymore), and more.

Suggestions to improve readability

Now that your writing's all polished, the next step you could take is to make sure what you've written is easier for others to read and comprehend. This is where Zia's readability metrics come in handy.

Zia will tell you if your sentences are too long for optimal readability, if they're broken into incomplete fragments, and also assigns you an overall readability score for your writing. Even better, Zia will further assesses which audience segments will find it easy to understand.

That's all for now. Give Zia's new Spanish skills a try right away by changing your document language on the bottom left corner to any of the Español variants. These suggestions will start appearing for you right away.

Got feedback? We're all ears! We welcome your feedback, suggestions, and tips on how you think we could improve Zia for all our Spanish-speaking users across the world.

Happy writing!
