creates word clouds in any shape and size

What is Wordaizer?

Wordaizer creates word clouds like Wordle does. But with a twist. It allows you to have full freedom to tune your word cloud to any size, colour, font and shape. The application is capable of making really huge word clouds, up to twice the size of A0. Save your result, print the word cloud or show it on your screen. Even animate your cloud if you like.


Some examples that you can make within seconds with Wordaizer

Wordaizer is a stand-alone application that works under windows or under a windows environment in OS-X (mac). After installation you can immediately create a word cloud. In the first period of use the application is unrestricted and fully functional. When these grace days have expired a few professional features will be limited or locked.

Shape control

Wordaizer creates word clouds in a shape. You can use any of the built-in shapes, or make your own shape. Or 'masks' as we call them. Not just horizontal or vertical words, also words placed at any angle, or even curved and curled. At any word density. Wordaizer let's you create truly unique word clouds.

Print and save

The result from Wordaizer is a (bitmap) picture: it can be saved on harddisk, and printed. The paper size is (of course) adjustable, allowing the user to save up to 2 x A0 (150 dpi print). You can save, print, post-process, copy, mail and publish it. Whatever you like, you have full control over the end result.

Supersize word cloud

You can save the word cloud (we like to call it 'wordlet') in a vector format: as a windows enhanced metafile ('emf' file format). That is a truly unique feature, never seen in any other 'wordle' application before. The 'emf' file wordlet can be enlarged endlessly as large as you want. Like real wallpaper if you like.

Save and re-use

With Wordaizer you can save the full settings into a so-called project file. This is a small file that stores all the relevant settings that you used in your favourite word cloud. Simply re-open that file and continue where you left it and make another great word cloud.

Download your copy

The software is free to use, is fully functional during the grace period, after which some restrictions will apply. It's freeware for non-commercial use. Some advanced features are then only available for licensed users.
The current version has Unicode support. Please be aware that Windows XP and older does not support Unicode, and in case you offer non-latin characters (e.g. Chinese or Hindi) the application may fail to create a proper wordlet.
The second file for download is a short tutorial to get you started (pdf format).

Some examples of word clouds

Example 1-3: Left: the Stratego general in words that closely follow the outline of the general. Middle: a compass built from special characters of only arrows. Right: the Facebook logo built from spider webs.

Example 4-6: Left: the Facebook logo made with a selection of smileys (and saddies). Middle: the sun made with only the character '7' and a quite interesting font. Right: Facebook again, now made with pointing fingers.

Example 7-9: Left: China made with many Chinese words (Unicode!). Middle: earth made from a text file with over 8 different languages. Right: A greek elephant.

Example 10-12: Left: Polish cat. Middle: Russian tweet bird. Right: Japanese alien. This wordlet was made with a sepcial color fading feature. Only the most frequent word gets the red colour, all other words fade to white with decreasing font size.

All these examples were made with the default installed files and pictures. Some examples were made after a few font, size and text input edits. All the fonts that are used are available after installation, including the Unicode examples.
