The International Development Jargon Detector

http://www.devjargon.org/

The International Development Jargon Detector (IDJD) is a bottom-up, data-driven approach to empowering underserved beneficiaries in the field. The IDJD uses a pre-defined list of “jargon” words. It extracts text from most common file formats and counts how many times the uploaded text contains words from the list. Word stems are used for counting so, for example, “sustain”, “sustaining” and “sustainability” are considered the same. Stop words like “of”, “it”, “the” are ignored. Most of file formats, e.g. .txt and .doc(x) will work, but so will .pdf and .ppt, and even .csv and .xls(x) files.
