The plagiarism checkers are available around the internet. It is helped in solving the issue that persists with a lot of students, teachers, and publishers. The most important thing that being a publisher or a teacher is that the work you are receiving is 100% unique. There is no copying and pasting of even a few words. So, the plagiarism checkers tool  are all around you. You can use them to check the authority and authenticity of the work. There is a great misconception regarding how the plagiarism checker works. In this article, we will guide you about how the software proceeds to the task.

How a plagiarism checker works?

The plagiarism checker takes the writing piece from the person. You can copy and paste it, give the URL of where the content is placed and may even get the option to upload the file that you wish to check for plagiarism. Once you give the writing piece, the software starts checking it for plagiarism.
It takes the article piece by piece. It checks various sections of your articles and matches them with the information available on the internet. It can be a paragraph, a sentence, a couple of words or something similar. Once the match it found, the software thoroughly checks the document for further matches of the content. In the end, the software will display the results in front of you. Along with stating that there is plagiarism in your work, it will also provide you the source from where the content is plagiarized i.e. copy pasted. So, not only you will get the plagiarism confirmation but also the sites from where the content is taken.

The software does not stop immediately when the match is found. It keeps on crawling other sites and checking for other matches. There are times when more than one match is found while you are checking the article for its uniqueness. In this case, the software will display all the sources from where the content is taken. For example, the writer or student might have taken half article from one site and ahalf from the other site. In this case, the plagiarism tool will tell you regarding both sites, and when you open the resource URL, you will get the matching part highlighted.

Avoiding plagiarism

To avoid plagiarism, you can use the rewriting or translate method. When you get the content from one place, and you translate it before posting, the checker won’t be able to detect it for the translated task. Similarly, when you rewrite the content that you find on one site, there are strong chances that you will get away with the plagiarism checking. Therefore, you can say that being a writer or a student, you are allowed to take the idea from a particular website. You can take the idea from one site and then write it in your own words. This will help you in getting the content as well as avoiding yourself from being detectable to the plagiarism checker.
