How to Paraphrase a Text?

Step 1: Perusing. Read the original text carefully in order to get the whole idea

Step 2: Word Substitution. Substitute the words in the original text with the synonyms and closest equivalents.

Step 3: Sentence Manipulation. Check to what extent you can rearrange the sentences. For complex texts, change the place of the subjects and predicates. Change active voice to passive voice and vice-versa. Change the place of the sources. For simpler texts, try to write a rendition which best suits the essential information in the original text. Remember to cite the sources as well.

Step 4: Check the meaning of your paraphrase against the original text.

Step 5: Mention the sources related to each paraphrasing section.
