This little tool solves a real problem of being able to loosely compare and find matches between 2 seperate lists of names, lines or words. While modern text editors can compare files for literal technical matching lines they are not good at "rough"/fuzzy matches (they can usually do case insensitive matches but thats it).
The tool compares two sets of data, each line is compared (order of lines is irrelevant we will compare each line in each set to each line in the other set), considering near-matches, fuzzy logic and more in for you to find out of there are similarities between the two sets. The tool caters for case-insensitive data, ordering and uses techniques like Metaphone, Levenshtein, factual matching and other algorithms.
Please paste 2 different sets of names (people names, company names, etc - whatever you want to compare) in the boxes below and click the button to start processing.
