I want to create a macro to replace a bunch of words with something else, and then revert everything back. A kind of dictionary macro, if you will.
For example, I would run the macro with these entries:
multiplication → multi1
defibrillation → defib1
utilization → util1
then the reverse would search for the items on the right side and revert them back to the left side.
The use case is to determine the Flesh-Kincaid readability score of text correctly, without letting jargon get in the way.
One thing that’s important is this: if the search term doesn’t exist, it should not make the macro fail. The macro should move on to the next term.
Does anyone know of a macro that already exists (or code that already exists) that does something similar? I can take it and adapt it.
Or, if someone finds this a fun pastime and wants to write it and post it here, knock yourself out!
