Speed up your Writing with PhraseExpert

If you are writing a lot of professional or technical documentation, and you would like to speed-up a process, you may find a freeware PhraseExpress quite useful.  After a while you may avoid typing the most common phrases again and again. Instead, the program will perform educated guess and will input the string automatically.  

How PhraseExpert may help you?

  • Organize frequently used text snippets.
Text snippets allow you to reply instantly to common questions. A snippet can be anything from a short phrase like “Kind regards” to a complete contract draft. When you are replying to an email, you simply type a text shortcut ("Autotext"), press a hotkey or select the desired phrase from a selection menu, and the snippet will be inserted for you automatically.

  • Expand abbreviations as you type.
PhraseExpress expands text abbreviations into full phrases for you. E.g. typing 'sig' could insert your signature into any program.  It provides this known MS Office Autotext feature in any Windows program, e.g. Internet Explorer, Excel, Database Front Ends, etc.

  • Auto-Complete
PhraseExpress silently monitors your individual text input and analyzes repetitive phrases. The text prediction algorithm is completely different from tedious Auto-Complete functions that are using just static dictionaries or web based contents. PhraseExpress rather adapts to your individual writing style. It learns what you type, it learns which suggestions you like and which you didn't. It automatically dumps rarely used words and assesses frequently word combinations based on your preference usage and frequency.

  • Spell Checking
PhraseExpress includes a system-wide spell checker in seven languages in any program. PhraseExpress supports Unicode for multi-language phrases and also offers you to switch the keyboard language layout automatically during keyboard input. This enables multi-language users to use different language within a single phrase with correct display of the characters. Or you can highlight any text and let PhraseExpress change the language scheme on demand.

  • Clipboard Manager
While the standard Windows Clipboard keeps only the last copied data, the PhraseExpress Clipboard Manager stores recently copied clipboard contents for instant pasting into any application.

  • Program Launcher
Launch programs simply by entering a text shortcut. For example, type 'word' to launch Microsoft Word or 'exc' to open a spreadsheet. You can define whether the program shall launch instantly or optionally after pressing a customizable confirmation key.

  • Correct spelling mistakes in any application.
PhraseExpress Standard Edition is free-of-charge to all personal users:

  • Fully featured
  • No trial expiration
  • No Spyware
  • No Adware
  • No strings attached!
