Wordsmith for Excel creates dynamic reports directly in your spreadsheet, where you already organize, manage and analyze your data. The Wordsmith plugin is also available for Google Sheets.

We’re making one of the features in Wordsmith for spreadsheets available to everyone for free. ExplainIt uses NLG and the Wordsmith API to instantly generate descriptive captions for charts and graphs in Excel and Sheets, making visual representations of data clearer with text-based summaries.

Wordsmith for spreadsheets comes with a free chart analyzer called ExplainIt. Simply select a chart or graph, and ExplainIt provides an instant narrative analysis.

Wordsmith for Excel and Wordsmith for Sheets allow you to generate insightful, human-sounding narratives within your spreadsheet in real time. The narratives update when the data in your spreadsheet changes, so your report is always in sync with your data. And you can embed the narratives you generate in Excel into other Microsoft Office tools.

When you bring Wordsmith into your spreadsheets, you can effectively scale the expertise of your company’s analysts. After one subject-matter expert creates a Wordsmith template, others can use that template with their own Excel or Sheets data to create personalized, insightful reports for any number of recipients.

Get Wordsmith for spreadsheets now and give it a spin. At last, business intelligence reports that write themselves.
