Hey alternativeTo,

I am Ludwig's CEO and Co-Founder, and I wanted to stand out to thank you for your up-votes. We are so excited about it!

We started Ludwig because Writing in good English is a daily challenge for millions of non-native English users, faced with linguistic barriers, misunderstandings and a sense of inferiority (Converting an idea into a sentence takes an English-as-a-Foreign-Language user on average 4 times longer than a native English speaker, with worse results).
We perfectly know how it feels and decided to build the product we always wanted to have.
Ludwig is a linguistic search engine that lets you search and solve your linguistic doubts, helps you to turn your ideas into well-written texts, makes you more independent and confident at your job.

How can you use it?
- To get reliable English translations, with contextualized examples
- To check your English sentences by comparing them side by side with reliable examples
- To find the inspiration to express your ideas with ease and learn how to write more effectively

It is for freeeeee!

Antonio Rotolo
CEO @ Ludwig
