Sparx EA Glossary Generator

With eaDocX

eaDocX reads your document and creates a glossary that is perfectly tailored to the contents it finds.

An accurate glossary can really help your readers to understand terms in your document which aren’t familiar. And a shared set of definitions can help reduce misunderstandings.

EA and eaDocX allows for a smart, easy and accurate approach to creating a glossary

  • It contains ONLY those terms which are used in the document
  • Has definitions which are taken from EA, so the definitions can be shared across many documents
  • Refreshes the contents of the glossary each time the document is re-generated.

Even if your document contains a mixture of EA generated and manual content, eaDocX will add terms to the glossary wherever it finds them - as long as the terms have been defined in EA.

When your document contains an eaDocX glossary, every term with a definition that appears in the main body of your document will automatically include a hyperlink to the glossary definition – for the first occurrence of that term.

Making it easy for your readers to have a common understanding of all the key terms.


Before I used to just copy & paste a glossary from another document, and hope everything I needed was in there - somewhere. Now I use eaDocX to generate the glossary for all my documents - even those that don't have any other EA content!
