I was going to write that something is ready for free download. But maybe for free downloading is the right grammar?

Without considering the cost options, the more natural formulation is "for download", whether "ready for download" or "available for download".

So, writing "for free download" is fine, but "for free downloading" sounds unusual. You might also consider alternative wording such as "available for download at no cost", or "available for download (free)".


In this case, I would say "The download is free", or "For a free download" Either way, it will still be grammatically correct, but it may not sound as correct as other wordings.


how about this:

free download is available
