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.

Jasper’s content and copywriting templates

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:

 Rephrase command in Jasper document

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.

Paraphrasing tool FAQs
Paraphrasing vs. plagiarism: What’s the difference?
Expand / Collapse IconExpand / Collapse Icon

Paraphrasing is taking someone else’s ideas and putting them into your own words to create unique content. Plagiarism is when you use someone else’s words, phrases, or ideas without giving credit to the original source—in other words, stealing.

If you think plagiarism only applies to journalistic articles or research papers, think again. When your audience finds out your website, blog, or marketing content isn't original, it can hurt their perception of your brand.

To avoid plagiarism, make sure that you paraphrase any ideas you didn’t come up with. Rather than just changing one or two words in a phrase, completely reword the content with your own tone, perspective, and opinion to make it unique.

Also be careful not to borrow so much from others that their ideas make up the majority of your content. Even if you reword the ideas, it’s still plagiarism. What if you do want to use exact content, quotes, or phrases from another source?

Quoting other resources can lend credibility to your content—but only if you cite your sources properly. Always use quotation marks and give credit to the original source.

What are the cons of using a paraphrasing tool?
Expand / Collapse IconExpand / Collapse Icon

While we think Jasper is top notch, not all paraphrasers are created equal. Here are some of the cons you may experience when using other tools on the market:

Some tools will just replace words with synonyms. This could make it hard to read and understand the new content.

Many tools don't take your tone of voice into account. This means you’ll have to revise the content to fit your brand voice.

Simpler online paraphrasing tools don’t offer many options for customization. For example, they may not allow you to simplify the content or make it more creative.
