Merops can standardize formulae and numerical terms based on context like tables and brackets. Some of the key features are listed below.
Everything Merops does can be customized to match your style requirements, or made consistent within a document.
Merops can automatically standardize the punctuation and spacing of:
Merops can automatically standardize characters such as:
Merops can convert between words and figures, based on context and size, for example:
Many of these rules are context-specific. For example, the number 1000 in general text, but 1 000 in tables. Also, Merops is clever enough to avoid making changes to numbers that are not counts or ranges (e.g. telephone numbers).
In technical documents it is critical that mathematical terms are presented consistently. Merops contains rules to correct author discrepancies, and converts between alternative math formats.
Merops standardizes symbols such as Greek letters and operators, e.g.:
Merops standardizes the formatting of functions, variables and operators:
Citation preferences are context specific, so Merops can apply one standard in general text, and other preferences in parentheses, tables, footnotes, or references.
Merops can also apply an abbreviated standard to citations in general text, while ensuring they are spelled out in full at the start of a sentence.
Merops can standardize and correct the presentation of formula labels:
Merops can convert:
These equations can be encoded as MathML in your XML file.
Merops can standardize the presentation of statistical variables. For example:
Merops can standardize the presentation of times and dates, e.g.:
Merops identifies and standardizes the case, formatting, and spelling of SI and Imperial units of measurement.
Merops can automate conversions between unit standards, e.g.:
Merops can automatically convert units from Imperial to metric, or Fahrenheit to Celsius, or vice versa.
Merops can standardize the presentation of currency.
Merops has over 50 preferences for individual units and contexts. For example:
Merops can standardize certain units in different contexts, i.e. general text, tables, parentheses, compound units, table captions / legends, and footnotes.
