This paper introduces the Gendercheck Editor", a tool to check German texts for gender discriminatory formulations. It re- lays on shallow rule-based techniques as used in the Controlled Language Author- ing Technology (CLAT). The paper outlines major sources of gender imbalances in Ger- man texts. It gives a background on the underlying CLAT technology and describes the marking and annotation strategy to au- tomatically detect and visualize the ques- tionable pieces of text. The paper provides a detailed evaluation of the editor.
