Quotations.ch is a tool for creative writers, translators and language learners
Quotations.ch for writers (English language)
(Other languages – coming soon)
Quotations.ch takes you beyond grammar. Quotations.ch is a writing tool that enables exploration of ideas in real time as you write. Through helping you experience different styles of thought and expression, Quotations.ch helps you sharpen your capacity for thought and crystallise a unique, personal writing style.
What makes Quotations different is its immediacy and interactivity. As soon as you select texts from our comprehensive library (or upload your literature), further steps are near-instantaneous, allowing you to immerse yourself in your favourite literature and engage with your favourite writers, philosophers and scholars on a deeper level. Alternatively, in the words of George Orwell, simply experince the “the joy of mere words, i.e. the sounds and associations of words.”
