This step calls the LanguageTool style, grammar and spelling checker and adds annotations for the issues found.

LanguageTool is an open source proofreading software for English, French, German, Polish, Romanian, and many more other languages. It finds many errors that a simple spell checker cannot detect like mixing up there/their and it detects some grammar problems.
