Legal professionals are wordsmiths who need tools to draft, analyze, and review complex legal documents. With that in mind, Codean, a software and analytics provider for legal and financial firms, recently released Visualizer 1.0 that analyzes and reports on key terms in Microsoft Word and searchable PDF documents and generates a report referencing a hyperlinked version of the analyzed documents.

Visualizer installs into Microsoft Windows with .NET support, and looks in documents for common legal styles to identify and report on defined terms. The program relies on quotes around defined terms and the capitalization of first letters. For example, Codean’s default configuration enables it to identify a key term like “Antecedent Claim” by the use of capital letters or surrounding quotes. If your documents have a different style to denote key definitions, Codean can customize the text analysis accordingly.
