Tool to Generate List of Acronyms in MS Word

Acronyms Master is a tool for MS Word that can create a table of Acronyms, optionally with their “discovered” definitions/expansions at the end of the the document. No, sorry, the table can’t be anywhere except at the end of the document. However, if all you want is a list of the acronyms/abbreviations in a document, it is the perfect tool. Saved me a minor headache, and I hope it comes in handy for those who are dealing with their thesis/dissertation/papers/documentation etc.

Edit: The tool is not free. The first time you use it, it’s free, and then you have to purchase it. I remember it as being free for personal use, but now it’s not. Something else might suit you better if you are looking for free software.

    Carthik, I sent you an email two days ago and needed your assistance. I am not a spammer, and I’ve had an unfortunate experience with a WordPress blogger that I hoped you could help me with.

    I would like to resend my email to you with a new email address (I’ve had to change it) and I thought perhaps you could please help me out with your computer skills.

    Thank you. I only ask for your help. You do not have to respond with anything other than, “I cannot help you” if you cannot. I just think you might be the only person who could help me out.

    Thank you,
    V
