Why Should You Paraphrase?

Why should you paraphrase?

Writing is a challenge for many people, especially for those whose mother tongue is not English. Paraphrasing helps in writing others’ ideas in your own words while keeping the same meaning and without being accused of plagiarism. Paraphrasing is one of the most important methods which is commonly practiced globally to express others’ work.

It can be stated that most of the content (over 90%) we see around us is paraphrased. Every organization or individual is neither capable nor has enough time and resources to conduct original research on every matter. Therefore, they use already written or published content in an “improved or different form”, which is known as paraphrasing or rewriting.
