wich meets all requirements even by students or professionals of native Italian.
Of course, even foreign nationals can use it.
Check the quality of Service is simple: just send us via e-mail, also with an address of convenience,
a text to be corrected, even deliberately introducing errors or ambiguous sentences, even difficult to interpret,
and wait for a few hours reception, at no charge, of the perfectly correct text.

A. No. Each text sent is examined and processed by a member of our Association,
who understands its meaning and, if necessary, may seek further clarifications from the sender.

their passion for Italian and having the objective of contributing to the spread of its proper use.
The beneficts we expect from our work consist of the visibility obtained on the Web through the quality
of the service provided and, in economic terms, of the return achieved by advertising.
Q. Why is imposed a limitation of the documents to 500 words? Why, in the case of documents longer than
is required to send a new mail?
A. lessicoitaliano.it aims to offer a fast and efficient Service free of charge to anyone requesting
it by a simple e-mail; this imposes the need to limit the lenght of the annexes to ensure that staff resources
could be saturated by requests for disproportionate lenght texts, such as a thesis, which is part of paid services.
It should also be considered the possibility that could be a real attack by vandals with the aim of
exhausting available resources by sending of a very large number of request emails generated by automatic programs
or with fake requests (for exemple, correction of Divine Comedy).
Q. Why the texts submitted to lessicoitaliano.it must not include personal informations?
A. The management of personal data of thirds involves some legal liabilities, with the consequence
of having to respect a great deal of regulatory compliances, that requires investments that aren't compatibles
with the provision of a free Service.
The sent emails are not stored by lessicoitaliano.it (but by providers of email Service), that, therefore,
will remove all unauthorized mails containing personal data without retaining tracks of them.
Q. Can you request to lessicoitaliano.it the compilation of texts on technical, artistic, legal or commercial
A. It is possible, but the Association will take responsibility for the done work only for the part
on the lexical-syntactic form of the document, anxious, however, to provide, within the staff's competences,
the best possible content. With regard of the artistic profile, in the paid services will in future be possible
to request the compilation of theme poems.
Q. How long the request will receive an email response?
A. The answer to which is attached the required documentation is, normally, sent to the email address
of the applicant in a few hours or,at most, in a few days. These response times may vary in particular moments
of portal's overloading.
