What's a good text expander out there for windows? Ideally it needs to work w/ MS Word, needs to be configurable in how it gets triggered, (i.e. the string hdt when followed by a space gets transformed into Help Desk Ticket, but hdt gets ignored). And needs to have an import option where a large list of tags & expansions can be loaded. Plugins for UltraEdit/Notepad++ would also be acceptable.

what would you use it for? There are a number of free solutions (like Autohotkey) if you don't have very specific needs and don’t need a more sophisticated interface to configure things.
If you want more flexibility, please have a look at our PhraseExpander. We have recently released the new version that displays suggestions as you type (so that you don't need to remember abbreviations). Abbreviations are confirmed typing the SHIFT key so that text is not expanded by mistake as you are typing.
