New API Puts Tansa Proofing in Almost Any Program

Integration allows customers to add our proofing engine and its custom editing features into proprietary and out of the box text editors

Tansa’s new API integration allows customers to drop our complete proofing tool into any kind of editorial system, proprietary or out of the box. Now you can access your trusted Tansa proofer from directly within almost any text editing environment.

Tansa is known for providing customers with a customizable proofing system unlike anything else. Our proofer allows users to completely tailor their dictionaries to recognize multi-word strings, proper nouns, style preferences, clichés and more. With our new API integration, users can further tailor their proofing environment to run Tansa with a more tightly integrated experience and without workstation installations.

An API is an “application programming interface” that allows one kind of program to interact with another, combining forces to produce an even better final product for you. In this case, Tansa’s new API integration takes the trusted functionality of our proofing engine and makes it available from within your preferred writing platform. Our API has already been tested and implemented with two of the most popular HTML-based text editors: TinyMCE and CKEditor.

Our API integration comes with new features, too. Editors will recognize our efficient, descriptive proofing window, but can now also edit directly in the text. Different flagged terms now display color-coded underlines within the text that indicate what kind of issue Tansa is highlighting: an AP Style problem, a misspelling, a cliché, a style miss or an unknown word. Clicking on a term within your text editor will initiate a popup menu with the same Tansa proofing options on which our customers rely to produce clean, style-ready copy. By integrating Tansa directly into your preferred text environment, users will see even faster proofing sessions because of quicker access to references such as style guides and dictionaries.

As an entirely web-based solution, Tansa’s API integration means you can use Tansa anywhere you create content. It also makes Tansa easier to integrate with emerging technologies, opening the door to more partners and new solutions.

Tansa can integrate with numerous web publishing tools:

  • TinyMCE
  • CKEditor
  • MediumEditor
  • RadEditor
  • WordPress
  • Drupal
  • And many others

It also includes source code examples.
