i would like to use marked 2 with it's great features, but as a german writer i'm keen to see a flesch-index which is useful for german language too. Maybe you know the wordpress plugin yoast, they did exactly that (see the links; there are a bunch of formulas for different languages too). There's a special Index for german as well, it's called the "Wiener Sachtextformel". i would really appreciate seeing this feature in marked soon. Are there any chances for that?

Links to a multilinguale flesch-index built in yoast seo plugin:

    I'll definitely look into this. I can't promise a timeline, but I'd
    certainly like to have it as part of Marked's international toolset.

    Hi Brett,
    that would be great. I’m writing for german blogs which use the Yoast SEO Plugin, too. But I write mostly in nvALT, iA Writer or Ulysses, using marked for preview. A german flesch Index validation built in marked would be great, so I don’t have to edit that much in the WordPress Backend.
