You may want to see exactly what changes were made by Wordala's proofreading or editing service.
On the Get Started page, if you select proofreading or editing, and you select a document that's not a PowerPoint document, check the "track changes" checkbox. This will result in your getting back a Word document that contains black text and red text.
The black text is your original, unchanged content.
The red underlined text is content that was changed. Words added are red and underlined. Words deleted are red with a line through them.
Your original sentence:
My cousins car is over their, its too bad its' painted green. Youre right when you say should of been painted black.
Proofread without "Track changes":
My cousin's car is over there. It's too bad it's painted green. You're right when you say it should have been painted black.
