Rather than a vague suggestion, it's easier to evaluate this if you can
propose an actual patch (showing both the before and after of a sentence
you find confusing without your rewording).

"despite of" and "in contrast of" are not idiomatic English; while I
don't mind helping you come up with grammar that matches a native
speaker's expectations, it's hard to do that without having an actual
sentence being changed, rather than just a couple of words from an
unspecified sentence.
