How to paraphrase content with Jasper
Jasper is one of the leading web-based AI writing tools, and for good reason. The GPT-4 AI model, just one of the LLMs that powers Jasper, has read millions of blog posts, websites, and other types of content to learn how people write. This allows Jasper to imitate human language and writing techniques to produce new or rewritten content via content templates or AI chat.
We might be a little biased, but we think Jasper is one of the best paraphrasing tools on the market. It offers a comprehensive set of tools and functions, allowing you to generate all types of content with the help of AI. Understanding how Jasper works can help you get the most out of it.
One great thing about Jasper is that it always produces original content. You don’t have to worry about plagiarism. Whether you’re using Jasper to write or rephrase content, you know it’s providing you with unique phrasing you won’t find anywhere else.
What’s more, Jasper can improve upon the content you input. Here’s another look at the Content Improver template:
In a blank Jasper document, paste in the content you want to rephrase:
Then, tell Jasper in plain language what to do. Here, we’ve used the command, “Rephrase the above in an encouraging tone of voice.” (When you try this, you can swap the tone as needed to match your brand. To make sure you choose the right one, check out our tone of voice tips.)
Then, we used Command + Shift + Enter to execute the command. Here’s the paraphrased text Jasper gave us:
See how quick and simple it can be to rephrase text? These are just a couple examples of the key features you can use in Jasper to refresh old content quickly, or to repurpose your content into other formats for different distribution channels.
Real examples of paraphrased content from Jasper
It’s easy to understand what paraphrasing is in theory, but what does it actually look like in practice? Let’s dive into some paraphrasing examples created using Jasper’s content templates.
We took the original content from our blog post “7 SEO Copywriting Tips and 3 Tools to Help You Rank Better,” and put it into the Content Improver—a tool that rewrites content to make it more interesting, creative, and engaging:
On the left you can see the two original paragraphs from the blog post. We chose a friendly voice, and put it through our AI-driven paraphrasing tool. On the right you’ll see three different paraphrased options.
Here’s another example of paraphrasing using the same blog post. This time, we used the Explain It to a Child feature, which rephrases text to make it easier to understand:
This is a great template for anyone creating content in a technical industry. For instance, a medical or finance company could use it to create a reader-friendly blog post out of a jargon-filled manual or guide.
What is a paraphrasing tool?
If you have solid writing skills, it’s possible to paraphrase content on your own. But it can be hard to paraphrase a lot of information when you’re creating content at scale. That’s where paraphrasing tools come in handy!
Paraphrasing tools are also known as paragraph rewriters, article rewriters, or sentence rephrasers. No matter what you call them, all these tools do the same thing: they paraphrase content to make it unique without changing its meaning.
These writing assistants make the process of paraphrasing content quick and painless—no more spending hours on paraphrasing pages upon pages of content. You can put the content into a rewriting tool, and in just a few moments you’ll have a unique passage.
How do paraphrasing tools work?
To paraphrase is to reword or restate something. So, on a basic level, paraphrasing tools look for synonyms for each word in the text you input. But this can change the meaning of the text. Sometimes it’s so changed it doesn’t make sense anymore.
To counter this, more advanced tools use artificial intelligence (AI) to interpret and retain the meaning of your original text. Because the AI is trained extensively in language models, these tools paraphrase more naturally.
Jasper takes this a step further with its lookback feature, available in Boss Mode. With this feature, Jasper “sees” the text that came before the part you want to paraphrase.
This context is used to deliver a more accurate output. AI does wonders for your efficiency, helping you crank out content faster than you could on your own.
What are the pros of using a rephrasing tool?
There are lots of pros to using a paraphrasing tool to write stronger, clearer content.
- You can change the structure of content while retaining its original meaning. And you can do it without racking your brain for the perfect phrasing.
- Paraphrase generators often produce revised content in seconds. This is much faster than manual paraphrasing.
- Online paraphrasing tools can process a lot more content than a human can, in a fraction of the time. They make it easier to rewrite content at scale.
- Paraphrasing tools help ensure your content is unique. They make it easier to avoid plagiarism and its negative impacts on your SEO and reputation.
- These tools are a fraction of the cost of hiring professional writers to write or rewrite content.
