I want to do a series of find and replace operations. Unfortunately, the documents I have to work on are in Word (.docx) format so I cannot script this. These are book chapters so formatting is important (italics, bold, indentation, fonts), I cannot simply convert to plain text.
Say I have a list of (about 20 different) words as follows:
black blue yellow
The replacement I need to do is to add accents so I would have a list of replacements like this:
bláck blúe yéllow
Is there a way I can automate this in Word? I would be happy to use another piece of software. I would be even happier if I could do this on Linux using scripting tools (but I guess this is wishful thinking). I have access to Linux and Windows systems, MS Word and LibreOffice.
