I recently discovered a very useful tool for acronyms/abbreviations:

https://www.acronyms-master.com/index.html

I've only scratched the surface of what it can do, but I suspect it would come in very handy in our work, when preparing to start on a very large project with potentially lots of undefined acronyms/abbreviations.

I recently discovered a very useful tool for acronyms/abbreviations:

I've only scratched the surface of what it can do, but I suspect it would come in very handy in our work, when preparing to start on a very large project with potentially lots of undefined acronyms/abbreviations.

It can do many interesting things, but some that stand out are:

(1) scan a Word doc for potential undefined acronyms,
(2) try to help you define them (against personal lists, online searching, black/white lists), and then optionally
(3) automatically insert a table in the doc, or save to a special database for future use.

This does look like a very useful app... Dec 1, 2018

... but the Pro version ain't cheap. And the 3-day free trial period is very short.

As for me, an internal glossary/abbr managements in a CAT tool supplemented with free PlusTools, online QTranslate or Lingvo--via a hovering cursor instant translation or Ctrl+C+C--still works like a charm for me)

However, usually there're TENS (not transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) of abbreviations in different fields and areas, so how is Acro-Master any better at telling them?

I agree that it is not cheap, and the trial period is too short, but having tested a few ‘automatic acronym/abbreviation scanners/extractors’, this one is the best. For example, PerfectIt (https://intelligentediting.com/ ) also has one, but it just isn't very good. CafeTran, and a few other CAT tools also have built in solutions (which is super cool and useful), but again, these aren’t is good as Acronyms Master.

will test, however Dec 2, 2018

I definitely intend to test it, but to test it in a useful manner, I need a project with enough acronyms. I'll look in past projects to find something with acronyms.
