Copyleak’s primary feature uses AI and machine learning to scan documents for plagiarized, paraphrased, and manipulated content. The tool checks against an extensive database of web pages, academic papers, and published works.
To cheat the plagiarism scan system, some users try to use hidden or special characters to mask their copied text. This feature is designed to detect those characters within a scanned document.
Text Compare allows users to upload and compare two files against each other. The feature will generate a report of identical text, minor changes, related meaning, and similarity percentage. While this is initially meant for users who want to check against reference documents, it is also useful for those who want to compare different versions of their drafts.
Copyshield is a security feature that monitors the web for any plagiarized content from your website. The tool will give you a report of sources that feature stolen content and caution the plagiarizers themselves of said content. For Copyshield to work, you simply need to add your website’s URL to the tool, and then insert the tracking code provided in your website’s code.
Copyleaks can scan documents in over 100+ languages, including Chinese, Arabic, German, Greek, and Japanese. However, scans will only be done in the same language as the reference document. For instance, Copyleaks will only check a Spanish document for plagiarism against Spanish sources.
