Online tool to test the Levenshtein Distance algorithm

Submit two text strings to see how they match with the Levenschtein distance algorithm. No registration. No logging.

 

What is the Levenshtein distance algorithm?

The Levenshtein distance algorithm is a way to measure the difference between two strings of text. It is also known as the edit distance, because it calculates the minimum number of operations needed to transform one string into the other. This can be useful in a variety of applications, such as spelling correction and natural language processing.

At Tilores we use the Levenshtein distance algorithm as one of the potential data record matching algorithms for entity resolution. These can be combined with other matching algorithms to allow fine-tuned data matching and deduplication.
