Apps, software, and services for content design
Content creators at Intuit rely on a number of tools and processes. In addition to content management tools like the One Intuit Content Management System, there are tools that help us create accurate, clear copy.
Associated Press Stylebook
The AP Stylebook is the foundation for many of our editorial decisions. When we differ from AP, as we do in the United States on the serial comma (we always use it), we detail our exceptions in this site. If you’re within the Intuit network, you can review the AP Stylebook here: https://www.apstylebook.com/intuit-2.

We use this tool to test and improve the clarity of copy and make sure we meet our readability level of fifth to eighth grade. Check with your manager for license and access information. Learn more about this tool at Readable.com.
Some content designers and teams are using this tool to simplify copy and make sure it’s clear. See how it works at Hemingway App.
This grammar and spelling checker monitors your content as you create it. Some content creators have been testing it. You might want to try it yourself at Grammarly.com.
