German commas made easy!

Do you find it difficult to decide where the commas go in an German sentence? Get help with Kommatroll!

This program will add missing commas in your German texts and offer advice on superfluous ones as well. At the same time, the program identifies and corrects misspelled words. Kommatroll classifies comma errors into over 50 different categories, and can therefore provide targeted explanations and examples for each suggestion. In addition, explanations are also available for most existing, correct commas. All comments are available in both German and English. For more information on comma types and errors, please see our German comma manual. In the case of spelling errors, Kommatroll suggests the most likely correction.

A colour scheme is used to distinguish between obligatory and optional commas, and you can choose if you want to see the optional suggestions. Furthermore, each error type can be turned on or off individually, for instance for stylistic or pedagogical reasons.
