OpenRefine (previously Google Refine) is a Java-based power tool for working with messy data: cleaning it; transforming it from one format into another; and extending it with web services and external data.

OpenRefine always keeps your data private on your own computer until YOU want to share or collaborate. Your private data never leaves your computer unless you want it to. (It works by running a small server on your computer and you use your web browser to interact with it)

OpenRefine is available in more than 15 languages.

OpenRefine is part of Code for Science and Society.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
