PDF Plagiarism Checker that Doesn’t Change File Formatting: Does It Exist?

You’ve just written your essay and saved it in the .pdf format. Now you want to make sure there are no similarities in your writing, so you upload your essay to a randomly chosen pdf plagiarism checker, which is supposed to run a high quality check. However, it turns out that it doesn’t support a .pdf file format.

And what if you need to check a file in .odt or .txt? What if there’re two or more diagrams, graphs or images in your document? Probably, its formatting will be totally destroyed or the file just won’t be scanned at all. The Unicheck development team has made it possible to upload files in different formats: .txt, .doc, .docx, .odt, .rtf, .pdf and .html. Besides, Unicheck won’t affect an initial document formatting after scanning.
