New! PERRLA for APA has merged with PERRLA for MLA to become a single product we now call PERRLA for Word. While this web page still says "PERRLA for APA", you can use this same software to create MLA formatted papers, too.
What is PERRLA for APA?
The best paper formatting software available
APA is the easiest APA formatting software to learn and use - AND we support it
like crazy ferrets…if crazy ferrets were computer-savvy and really cared
about your customer experience.
PERRLA for APA works directly with Microsoft Word
Our software “lives inside” Microsoft Word*. We create a “PERRLA” menu within Word so any time you write a paper, you’ll have our powerful formatting software at your fingertips. PERRLA for APA will help you perfectly format your entire paper - from your Title Page to References. It can even create Annotated Bibliographies, Tables of Contents, Abstracts, and more with ease. PERRLA for APA makes writing papers as painless as writing a paper can be!
*For the Mac version of Word 2016, PERRLA runs side-by-side with Word. If you’re a Mac person, click here to see how great that works.
