none of that is a concern with the existing software - since it only creates

Wörter bedeuten spätestens dann das gleiche (oder dasselbe?), wenn der 
Unterschied nur noch Korinthenkackern bekannt ist, die scheinbar (oder 
anscheinend?) die einzigen sind, die ihn in wenigen Worten (oder Wörtern?) 
erklären können. Die weisen dann andere grundsätzlich (oder ausnahmslos?) auf 
solche Fehler hin. Aber den meisten ist das zu schwer (oder schwierig?), so 
dass die Mühe umsonst (oder vergeblich?) aufgewandt ist.
