    Being a writer the worst thing that a client will tell you is you have plagiarized an article. This is both a very scary and embarrassing experience.
    Does any one know how to check if you have accidentally plagiarized part of another work?
    Is their any software for this?

    If you want to check for plagiarism then there are plenty of websites both free and paid that can run quick checks to see if there is possible plagiarism. You just copy your text to the boxes on the sites and run the check. Some also have the feature that lets you upload the file in case it's a big written work.

    Just run a Google search for "Plagiarism Checker" and you will find many to choose from.

    Cheers, Dean.

    You can use Copy leaks (copyleaks.com) and Plagiarisma (plagiarisma.net) tool to detect copyright infringements in your essay, research paper, coursework or web pages.

    One thing that I do besides using the regular online Plagiarism checkers is to copy a sentence or two from the piece in question that is distinct and search Google in quotation marks ("example").

    This will show if and where that sentence or two is located around the web. It works best if the text is somewhat unique. ;)
