Wordman's Acrogen

Creating a master abbreviation list for your proposal? Want to make sure that all abbreviations are stated in full on the first occurrence but not thereafter? Wordman's Acrogen, an add-in for Microsoft Word 2007 and 2010 to 2016 (32- and 64-bit), lets you rapidly create an accurate abbreviation list for a single proposal document, or a master list across all your proposal documents, including where each abbreviation was found, and how many times it was found.

You can format your completed abbreviation list ready for submission with your proposal! Also, Wordman's Acrogen finds abbreviations in headers, footers, footnotes, endnotes, comments, and text boxes.
