Tricks to summarize and paraphrase easily:
• We all know how important it is to be able to convey an author’s views in your own language. This is an indication of how well you have understood his writings. Although expressing his opinions and ideas may appear to be a challenge at first, with practice, you will find it becoming simpler and simpler. Using thesaurus and dictionaries may be an excellent way to write an accurate summary of what you read. When you have a command over vocabulary, it is not at all difficult to play with words to give your writing a unique look and feel although your ideas may have been heavily borrowed from an external source.
• In summarizing, we try to extract the key points in a text and then create a summary which covers all these points in a different language. There must be a marked distinction between your write-up and the original text. You can use different sentence structures or simplify the ideas given to give it a new look. You may even use the keywords mentioned in the original text because at times it may not be wise to simplify these any further for fear of altering the meaning. At the same time, you can try to arrange these in a different way and combine these with other words for a more interesting read.
