Of the many APIs we published this week, five were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we'll shine a spotlight on those five, which included the Merriam-Webster Dictionary API for definitions, synonyms and antonyms. We said Webster's API would be good news to education apps that want to include words--and their definitions--in either strictly educational or word play format. Read more in the Webster API post or check out the Merriam-Webster API profile.
Last week, TextMaster launched an API that allows developers to integrate copywriting, translation, and proofreading services directly into an application or tool. From blogging platforms to e-commerce companies, any company or individual that needs a second pair of eyes to review content can utilize TextMaster's API. TextMaster CEO, Benoît Laurent, commented: "Potentially any company can need our services to translate a website or to write a brochure or a newsletter.”
