Why Choose Mellel?

Here are some of the things that make Mellel unique.

Mellel is a word processor designed from the ground up to be the ultimate writing tool for academics, technical writers, scholars and students. Mellel is strong, stable and reliable, and is the ideal companion for working on documents that are long and complex, short and simple, or anything in between.

Mellel is Different

The features and user interface reflect our thinking about the needs of a writer; we don’t try to imitate or emulate other word processors. We believe that familiarity should not come at the expense of usability and power, and our first priority is to give you, the writer, the best tools for the job, and present them in a sensible and logical way.
