Plagiarism Finder is a German system that was one of the best systems tested in 2004, but has been plagued with difficulties since then, most specifically with the system not working stably and returning widely varying results just minutes later on a re-test. This is a system that is installed locally on a computer, or which can be purchased on a USB stick. There are many details about the system that makes it fit nicely into the workflow of a teacher, it was tied for second place for usability. But even for the new, English-language test cases, it only placed 11th.
