What is Text Similarity?
A quick introduction
For us, humans, finding differences inside a text is super easy. We all know, for example, that "Amazon" and "Amazn" were probably intended to be the same word but we made a mistake writing it.
Unfortunately, this difference is not too clear for computers and we need to implement some ways to tell if they are referring to the same text. There are many ways to do this:
Although this kind of string similarity does not provide information about the context, only the writing, it can still be useful for some purposes.
Down below you can see some use cases for this service.
What can you do with our Text Similarity API?
We have written a few use cases to inspire you develop a smarter application!
- You can provide your users with alternative - and very similar - words while they write something.
- Plagiarism Detection
- Build a system to check if your user input is somehow very similar to another record.
- DB Deduplication
- Find duplicated records in your database with ease.

Once you sign up, you will get 100 free credits to use them whenever you want. We will never pressure you into purchasing something you are not completely sure you will need.
- I've ran out of free credits and I'm still not convinced.
In this case you can get in touch with us and we can refill your free credits account for further API testing 🥳
