Stockholm, Sweden  ()

(STOCKHOLM, 15 March 2021) - Ouriginal, one of Europe’s leading provider of text-matching solutions for plagiarism prevention and text-similarity detection, is happy to announce the official launch of its new solution to verify the originality of any given text. The solution is going to be launched in a phased manner  starting from today. It combines our established and reliable similarity checking algorithms with features that educators increasingly see as a must-have: Authorship verification to detect ghostwriting, and plagiarism detection in translations from one language into another. The solution can be seamlessly integrated into most Learning Management Systems (LMS), and will be an asset for any organization that wants to safeguard academic integrity and promote originality.

 Addressing the Changed Needs of Educators As A Result of the Pandemic: Plagiarism Prevention Redefined

The increased use of digital learning during the pandemic saw a marked increase in ghostwriting and other forms of plagiarism. This in turn, led to an urgent need for solutions that could help detect such instances of plagiarism. To address this demand, the new Ouriginal solution now includes these add-on features - ‘Cross-Language Text Matching’ (CLTM) and ‘Ouriginal Metrics’. CLTM detects text passages that have been translated from one language to another, whereas Metrics analyses and compares writing styles to give teachers more intelligence to judge if a document was really written by the person claiming its authorship.

Our new solution will address these new challenges.
