    Hello,

    I'm wondering if someone can help me or point me in the right direction. I need a cheap program built that could take a sentence and turn it in to different sentences at the click of a button.

    To be more clear.

    1. I need to input car dealer inventory in to program. "2010 Honda Accord, Sunroof, Chrome Wheels"
    2. I need to program to spit out random text with the vehicle input data. Example: "Here you have a 2010 Honda Accord loaded with leather, sunroof for those sunny days, with sporty wheels that gives the car hot look!, blah, blah, blah.........."

    Problem:

    I have hundreds of cars to post into Craigslist and need each descriptive paragraph to be different, without writing each of these one after another. To time consuming.

    I will created many different strings of sentences and paragraphs that I would like to use in the description, but I need some sort of program to help me randomize each car listing ( inputting year, make , model, features, etc.) to pick one of the different random descriptions I create.


    Incase you don't understand...

    I want to input vehicle description (ex. 2010 Ford Explorer, Sunroof, Leather Seats, Power Windows..etc.)

    I want to take that info and combine it with random text words or sentences to form original paragraphs. (results: "Here you have a clean 2010 Ford Explorer for sale. It's loaded with leather seats for your comfort for a comfortable ride. In case you want to let your hair blow, just open the power sunroof and let the summer breeze flow through ,blah,blah,blah....")

    Can anyone help me with this or point me in the right direction to a program that will allow me to do this. Or perhaps a way to program this in excel or something.

    Thanks guys.

    How much variability do you want? If you don't want too much you could just come up with 3 ways of writing each sentence and then just randomly pick one. Then move on to the next sentence. Excel could do it.
