PERRLA for Word

Using PERRLA 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 Word 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 Word 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 that works.

PERRLA vs. Word

Just no. Friends don’t let friends format APA/MLA papers with Microsoft Word. References created with Word require manual corrections to be truly APA/MLA compliant.
