Together with the reference manager Bookends, Mellel has not only served me extremely well for writing and preparing the camera-ready copy of my book on the St. Petersburg Rock scene, but also for numerous conference papers and articles, as well as teaching material. Unlike other word processors I know, I can focus on writing while Mellel keeps the references, formatting, cross references, titles, etc. the way I want them to be.
I write books in different languages, about different cultures. I like Mellel because it allows me to move between languages in a very easy way.

I'm an academic, thus a professional writer. Mellel is by far the best word processing program I've ever used. I've been writing with it for 4 years. I never had any trouble. Actually, I only use other word processors when I have to.
One of the key aspects of my thesis writing was powerful, flexible, and reliable software. From the very first month of my PhD, I heeded to use Mellel as my text editor. Combined with Bookends, the citation manager, it's a real workhorse of a tool. If you're a Mac user, don't hesitate to switch, and I'll even share my style-set with you! I genuinely believe that, if you're a Mac user, this will make your life much easier.
I use Mellel for all my writing – be it academic publications, newspaper articles or simple letters and it has never let me down. Besides the fact that all of Mellel's features are really well-thought-out, I particularly treasure its stability. This application is rock solid; data loss or corrupted files are unknown to Mellel users.
Of course research takes time, but Mellel makes it much easier, more enjoyable. At the end of the day, it saves a ton of time. I couldn't recommend Mellel enough for writers, researchers interested in getting a crisp final product.
I'm an academic. I write for a living. I finished my PhD dissertation with Mellel. Mellel's style system kept me from losing my mind. Thank you.
